About Ian Kuali'i
Ian Kuali’i is a multi-disciplinary artist born in Orange County California, raised in Maui Hawaii and currently residing in the New York City Metro Area.
Ian’s creative process blends the contrasting elements of very loose graffiti technics with extremely detailed hand cut paper and collaged found materials to create unique compositions. His work is a balance between the rough and delicate while exploring ideas of modern progress dependent on a foundation in one’s own history.
His art is predominantly influenced by his ancestral ties to the indigenous people of the Southwest United States and Hawaii, as well as masonic symbolism, mysticism, global politics and themes of urban decay.
Through out his career, Ian has assisted such artists as Doze Green, Carlos “Mare139” Rodriguez, Kid Zoom and WK Interact in large scale projects and installations across the country. He has worked in collaboration with notable brands including Universal Pictures and Global Grind by creating one-of-a-kind art pieces for their events and products.
