Kai Lun Qu | Trekell Art Supply

Kai Lun Qu

Medium of Choice: Oil

“I first tried out Trekell when they first were gracious enough to help sponsor the workshop I was teaching with Sentient Academy.

Upon picking up and trying out their brushes I never looked back. I have been switching between different brush types throughout my painting journey and Trekell’s Opal and Legion (my go to brush types) offer the perfect handling and flexibility in its performance.

I am at full confidence when I have their brushes in my hand before the start of a new painting and since starting to use them exclusively, it truly enhanced the efficiency of my artistic process.

Their panels are also magic, I’ve yet to come across a linen that could match the high quality buttery smoothness I felt when I used their Oil primed Linen on ACM. I am very excited and beyond honored to join them on their journey as a part of their Pro Team."

Kai Lun Qu is known for his alla prima paintings filled with expression and painterly strokes that evoke deep emotions. His unique blend of traditional style with a contemporary twist is a result of two extremes: a formal training in China’s most prestigious art academy, China Central Academy of Fine Arts and intense studies with renowned contemporary painters like Daniel Keys, Tim Rees and Michelle Dunaway in the United States.

Kai is currently creating oil paintings for Marvel, contributing to the award winning game, Marvel Snap. He was also on the faculty of the Portrait Society of America Conference as well as being a recipient of the Certificate of Excellence for their International competition. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the US, and published by Poets Artist Magazine and Plein Air Magazine. In 2018, Kai was featured in Southwest Art Magazine's 21 under 31 Article, where he was one of 21 artists under the age of 31 being celebrated as rising art stars from across the West and around the country.

Kai is a Pro Team Artist for Trekell Art Supplies, Mentor for Sentient Academy, Member in The Circle of Gamblin Artists + Educators. He has also presented and exhibited at Lightbox Expo, San Diego Comic Con and Vision X Global Art Conference.
