Art by Kai Aspire.

If you live in Los Angeles, you’ve surely seen the work of Kai Aspire.  His iconic parody of the Marlboro Red cigarette pack (Morons – see pictures below) has been pasted everywhere!  His art has made the leap from the streets to the galleries, but little is known about Kai Aspire – until now!  I recently sat down with the reclusive artist and he answered a few questions.  Enjoy!

According2G: Tell us a little bit about your background including how you got started in street art?

Kai:I grew up in a house full of art, so technically speaking it’s in my “blood.” I think I got into street art when I was around 12 years old. I surfed, skated, snowboarded, and that kind of stuff and street art always has some kind of connection to those activities, but the real game changer was seeing Banksy’s show in LA. I didn’t even know it was street art, I looked at it and thought it was extremely clever and well put together.
