Artist Kii Arens: Live/Work Studio
April 27, 2010
Kii Arens at home. He is as cool as the glasses suggest.
A stack of the artist's work sits in his live/work space's front window.
Arens' cupcake painting sits below a poster for his Hollywood Bowl art show. Dog toys and computer parts round out the vignette.
Kii recently scored these flat files. Too bad his poster collection won't all fit.
His newest obsession: velvet paintings. He created this one depicting gay icon Charles Nelson Riley.
A portrait of Grace Jones, by
, sits on top of a locker bank.
A giant beanbag sits below his recording studio, a futuristic structure built by his father in the 1970s.
While doing research on a poster of Madonna, Kii showed me this book on Erte. All good research involves beer, as seen in the trash can.
Kii's guitars and keyboards. And a toy piano and motorcycle helmet thrown in for good measure.
