'Influx' was created in three countries. Kean started carving the woodblock in Australia while participating in FLUX Hawaii magazine's pop up art show in Sydney. He finished carving the block in Japan while participating in two Hawaii theme art events and finally printed it at home on Oahu.
About the Artist: Kean’s recent work is a collection of wave studies utilizing this technique. It is driven by a passion for the process and a love affair with the ocean. The relief prints that define Kean’s work render what may have only previously been an abstract feeling for an ocean-minded person. ‘I hope to elicit a reaction in those who have felt that symbiotic connection with the ocean, and at the same time provide access to those who maybe have not had that experience.’
