Kai Campbell


RGU Art and Heritage 2020 Purchase Award Nominee

bp Fine Art Award Nominee

Kai Campbell’s practice is, first and foremost, an exercise in mediation, using his enjoyment of making art to counter the allure of the mass media and ensuing plethora of  ‘engrossing’ entertainment. Secondly, it is an attempt to involve the viewer in what can best be described as an analogue expression of the digital experience.

In the complex realm of online mass media, Campbell’s paintings remind us that we are sliding through drifts of unrelated, and unregulated, information more regularly than ever before. Deploying a plurality in both style and approach, he mimics the journey that our eyes and minds take as we sift our way through incoherent fragments of information in the world wide goldfish bowl of social media.
