Behind the Scenes of Kai & Sunny’s “Lots of Bits of Star”

by CaroPosted on

Kai & Sunny are a London based creative duo that are especially attentive to detail. Together, they create intricate, nature inspired screen prints on a variety of media. The images below show their scrupulous process- taking us behind the scenes of their hand drawn sketches to the final, hand pulled screen prints. These are detailed further with inks with mineral powders, to achieve texture and sheen. For their upcoming show at Jonathan Levine gallery, “Lots of Bits of Star”, Kai & Sunny will debut new prints with unreal geometrical patterns exposing our misconceptions of the world around us. For example, a star shines beautifully and brightly, but is a wild, luminous ball of gas. They will also exhibit new carvings, letterpress and ink works on paper, and a collaboration with Shepard Fairey. Kai shares, “Sunny and I use nature in our work to connect with people, to provoke thoughts and memories. We like the idea of showing something you can’t actually see and asking bigger questions.”
