about

Kai Cabodyna’s practice is rooted within returning to natural rhythms, dethroning patriarchal conditioning, cultivating community, exploring collaborative projects and evolving cultural paradigms. Overlapping and communicating through various mediums allows for his eclectic and adaptable process to reflect the way nature orchestrates it’s patterns, rhythms and flows. 

 

 

“The aim of my work is to invoke shifts in patterned ways of thought and to inspire perspectives which shake up habitual nature. I create to create resonance beyond conventional tendencies.”

Born October 21, 1988 in Calgary, AB, Canada, Earth. Currently residing at the foot of The Valhalla Provincial Park in the Slocan Valley of British Columbia.

“Creation from a place of stillness. From this mental spaciousness something is manifested that goes beyond myself and those I work alongside. It becomes a bridge between the tangible and the intangible, between form and the formless.”
