Aaron Kai “Vices” Exhibition at Above Second Gallery (Hong Kong)

Hawaiian muralist and artist Aaron Kai is set to unveil his newest exhibition titled “Vices” at Above Second Gallery this weekend. “Vices” takes inspiration from the “vices” of our generation. Often viewed as sinful or immoral to society, vices hold an aspect of elevating sub-cultures, a notion Kai aims to explore with his signature style of wavy post-pop art that embraces whimsical designs and bold colors.

The exhibition will appropriately be held in the multicultural, metropolitan setting that is Hong Kong, an indulgent city of both virtues and vices. Kai will be in town for meet-and-greets and will also be offering unique dead stock pieces for sale.

If you’re in Hong Kong, be sure to stop by the Aaron Kai “Vices” exhibition’s official opening May 22.

SAVE ART Project 001 featuring Aaron Kai

 

In collaboration with POW! WOW! Hawaii, the first project in the SAVE ART initiative features the work of Hawaiian muralist and artist Aaron Kai. As a private non-profit charity that promotes art through education, SAVE ART asked Kai to appropriate a vintage Herman Miller “Surfboard” table with his signature colorful “post-pop” wave motifs to create a piece that could be sold, from which all the proceeds will go to POW! WOW! Hawaii.

Watch the video above for the process of producing the piece, and head over here for more on the SAVE ART project.
