After having both graduated from the Epsom School of Art in Surrey, United Kingdom, with degrees in Art and Design, Kai & Sunny went on to collaborate with Alexander McQueen and Shepard Fairey and have won numerous accolades (including a 2012 D&AD Design Award).
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 colored archival ballpoint pens [Ed: Wait… WHAT?!? They just use pens?], building up images of dizzying, geometric complexity out of single lines. (Learn more about their process in the above video.) The Kai & Sunny decks are available worldwide at elementbrand.com.
