KAI ONE (Josh Flood) talks about "Urban Detritus"

Work in progress in the gallery

Thursday, September 11, I decided to go see KAI ONE working on the installation of his show at Art Produce Gallery in North Park. I was there around 9:30. Kai was just starting working but he had already worked a lot the previous days. I did not want to bother him but I was very curious to see the work in progress and to ask him about what "Urban Detritus"-his how at Art Produce- is about. I am impressed by the work, the energy Kai puts in it, the very unique way he mixes the elements which make his vocabulary. I don't know much about his story but through some writings I read I can sense that his life so far (and he is only in his mid-twenties) has not been a quiet journey.
I took some short videos. Here are two of them.

The twins towers are a recurrent theme
in Kai's newest work.
