Aaron Kai, a post-pop artist, takes on the world as he embarks on his inaugural #AaronKaiWorldTour to promote his work. So far, he’s been to places such as Guam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. Next on his map is Singapore, where he will make an appearance at the SUP store this coming Friday, March 27th, to launch his capsule collection of headwear in collaboration with premium headwear label, Official, along with an exhibition of his work.

Aaron, who’s based in San Francisco, was born in Hilo, Hawaii, and naturally draws inspiration from the waves, beaches and surfing. Aaron got his headstart in art sketching Dragon Ball Z‘s Super Saiyan as a kid. That was then. Today, Aaron’s art veers towards themes such as 40s, weed, and women, and all this using a palette of high-contrast primary colors “because it clashes so bad that you’re forced into looking at it” (source).

Aside from canvases and walls, Kai has also transferred his works onto streetwear and accessories. He started printing his art on t-shirts, which eventually developed into his own label, Lemon. And then there’s the capsule collection with Official, in which Aaron’s art is screened on a range of snapbacks, campers, bucket hats and visors which will be available in Singapore from Friday onwards.
