Red Bull House of Art says
Sit down with our 3 Artists in Residence
Ian Kuali'i, Drew Merritt and Michael Reeder.

As our resident artists are in the midst of working on their exhibition, they share their own experience as artists and professionals in the art world. While all three artists depict themes of identity and cultural issues in their work, their studio practices vary greatly. We explore the process and inspiration behind their work, as well as what life as a professional artist is like for them personally.

This event is free & open to the public of all ages.
Complimentary water and Red Bull will be provided.

Ian Kuali’i is a multi-disciplinary artists born in Orange County, California, raised in Maui, Hawaii and currently residing in Berkeley, California. Self education coupled with a 7 year apprenticeship with the legendary artist Doze Green helped him develop the unique process and voice he is recognized for today.

Drew Merritt lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Merritt's vision of painting the human spirit with an urban mindset has allowed him to paint a broad spectrum of human capacity and the depravity of our shared situation in the twenty-first century. Christianizing culturally ambiguous and sexually androgynous figures, his painted Others are icons of urban culture, contextualized by the ubiquitous grit of metropolitan dwelling.

Michael Reeder currently lives and works in Taos, New Mexico. Throughout Reeder’s work, realism is mixed with flat graphic space, and themes or motifs of identity, ambiguity, and ego are loosely implied. The convergence of infinite space and the figure highlights the realm of contemplation located between the conscious and the subconscious mind.

The Red Bull House of Art aims to give wings to brave art and culture innovators. The House of Art offers a complete live-in residency experience in Detroit, complimented with powerful exhibitions, informative lectures and immersive practical demonstrations.
