With his paternal grandfather an architect and avid art collector and his maternal grandfather a student of the famous Staatliches Bauhaus, a father who was an antique dealer and a mother who was a ballet dancer, there has always been art in the life of Kai Fehr.
Taught by a Hochschule der Kuenste (HDK) Berlin Professor who changed her career path to that of a high school teacher, Kai learned to draw, paint and master printing techniques. The teacher became his inspiration and has influenced his artistic career to this day.
Kai currently resides in Singapore with his family and has works in two corporate collections and four series under his belt – Rhyme or Reason; Past, Present, Future; Short Memories; and Script.
The self-taught artist explores history, economics, the environment and politics in his works.
“After about four years of figurative works I have come full circle and am back to abstract storytelling - while trying to create beauty through balance and repetition. It usually starts with a thought or something I have seen or read, something I have researched. Most of the time our history, our past, is the starting point for my work.”
