CURATORIAL INFORMATIONSTATEMENT   

Estamos Aqui, is presented in conjuction with Galería de la Raza's current exhibtion Paper and Blade: Storytelling Under the Knife. 


Ian Kuali`i’s creative process is “The meditative process of destroying to create.” Blending the contrasting elements of loose graffiti techniques with detailed hand cut paper to manifest unique compositions. His work is a balance between the rough and delicate while exploring ideas of modern progress dependent on a foundation in one’s own history. His ancestral ties to the Southwest United States and Hawaii, influence his work as well as Masonic symbolism, mysticism, global politics and themes of urban decay.
