About Kai Morgin

Hi, and thank you for dropping by!

I started my art career at the age of four drawing dinosaurs on a blackboard. Today, I'm now a bit of a dinosaur, creating abstract mixed media and digital art that celebrates nature, and in particular, the ocean and our coastlines.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, I've lived in various areas near our coastlines between Sydney and the Gold Coast and have developed a very strong connection and deep respect for the ocean and marine ecosystem from which I draw my inspiration, and in turn, dedicate my art to its preservation.

When people view my art I want them to be reminded of the simplistic beauty of the ocean and its movement - the ebb and flow, the kaleidoscope of colours it reflects,  the cycle of life. To connect with its omnipresence, or be reminded of its tranquility when we're standing beside it, and to revere in the incredible marine life and ecosystems that reside beneath its waves. 

As I create my art, I think of how delicate this ecosystem is; its health mirrors ours, and our own health is reflected.

For aeons, humans have been mistreating the oceans - dumping chemicals and plastics, commercial fishing boats taking more than their share, their nets ripping away the very foundations of the ocean floor. Marine life is under severe threat of extinction. Without it there is no "Blue Planet", there is no us.

One key way to preserve the future of the ocean - our Blue Planet - our lives - is to diminish human-made pollution from entering the oceans. We as creators need to focus on making bespoke and eco-friendly items made to order rather than mass produced that will last for generations. The excessiveness of humanity's consumption is crippling the ecosystem because many products aren't made to last for more than a few years.

"You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the ocean in a drop."  - Rumi

That's why it's so important to me that all of the products you'll find here at store are of the highest quality, are produced in Australia using locally-sourced materials, and are built to last - no machine canvas stretching, no machine-made plastic frames, but sustainably produced products that will last for generations.

I hope you enjoy my art as much as I did in creating it - art truly has been a blessing to my life. Please send me a photo of your art at your place to my instagram account @kaimorgin_art!

Best wishes to you!

Kai
