CALGARY GUARDIAN: ARTIST FEATURE
January 22, 2020
Kiran Rai (or KRAI) is an emerging, Punjabi-Canadian artist. After moving to Tokyo, Japan, during her studies, she is back in Canada and currently based in Calgary, AB. In her mixed-media work, KRAI explores themes surrounding portraiture, abstraction, and her cultural identity as a first-generation woman in the Punjabi diaspora. KRAI is interested in the intersection between art and architecture, and its ability to both capture and exude emotion in the built environment in order influence the human experience. By bringing her two worlds together, KRAI aims to create extraordinary, creative spaces to support Arts and Culture across Canada.
