Ian Kuali’i

SWC Exhibition

July 26, 2019 - August 25, 2019

Ian Kuali’i is a multi-disciplinary, self-taught artist of Hawaiian and Apache ancestry working in the forms of large-scale hand cut-paper, murals, prints, and site-specific installations. From a single sheet of paper using only an xacto blade as Kuali’i’s tool, his detailed hand-cut paper portraits, journal entries and scenes are masterfully rendered with a blend of loose urban contemporary techniques. “One can’t erase a razor line so the process teaches me to be patient and gentle while at the same time destroying to create.” The process is meditative at its core. “My mentor Doze Green always taught me to breathe and allow breath and blade to guide me as opposed to me guiding the blade.” Ian’s hand-cut method explores ideas of indigeneity, modern progress, biodiversity, and the foundation of one’s own history.
