This week, skateboard brand Element unveil their recent collaboration with UK artists Kai & Sunny exclusively at Colette, Paris.
The limited edition capsule collection titled, My Eye On You includes a set of 4 skateboard decks, a t-shirt and tote bag featuring the work of the artists.
Kai & Sunny take inspiration from the natural world and the patterns and forms it manifests. The works on paper measure approximately a meter in both width and height, and are created using coloured archival ballpoint pens, building up images of dizzying, geometric complexity out of single lines. In both form and theme ‘Time’ is in the foundation of each image. The original pieces represent the shifting flow of time. The slow methodic process of building thin line upon thin line in colour creates a tension inside the compositions. The works are intense and powerful but the delicate nature of the lines creates a fragility, as if the structure would collapse if one were taken away. The new works show magnified and stylised drawings of natural occurrences featuring continuous tidal-like waves and intense sun bursts.
In conjunction with the limited collection Colette is pleased to present My Eye On You, a series of new works by artist duo Kai & Sunny. It will be their 1st solo exhibition at the gallery after solo shows in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
