Kai Wasikowski is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Sydney, Australia. In familiarising rapid environmental and technological change, Kai’s artistic practice maps an intimate relationship with the threat of impending ecological disaster and explores the emotional reverberations of a connection with such disproportionate scale.
Since completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts (First Class Honours with University Medal) in 2016, Kai has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions across Sydney, Regional NSW, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Berlin, Singapore and Canada. In mid 2017 Kai’s work was shown in Hatched: National Graduate Show at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts where he was awarded the 2017 Schenberg Art Fellowship and a year long Mentorship with Mikala Tai, Director, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art. Currently he is working towards solo exhibitions in 2019 at Firstdraft Gallery, Sydney, Artereal Gallery, Sydney and Warnambool Art Gallery, Victoria and a two month residency in China at the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre across both Beijing and Xiamen locations.
