Kauai artist Patrick Ching has developed an unusually progressive art show concept with great success throughout Hawaii. The first Kai show has held at Princeville Center in 2013. Ching was there for a whole month to paint ten paintings while people watched and bid on the pieces. Many people actually got to paint on Ching’s originals and others watched on live streaming video as he worked on them. All the paintings were sold and the show raised money for its beneficiary, the Kilauea point Natural History Association. Since then the “KAI” Show has been held annually at the Princeville Center and the Moana Surfrider Resort in Waikiki, Oahu. Patrick Ching was a wildlife ranger at the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on Kauai in the eighties and nineties. He also worked for extended periods on remote islands in Hawaii protecting sea turtles and monk seals. He is the author of several books and teaches art internationally.
There are ten paintings as part of this event that the artist has been painting for the duration of the auction. Interested bidders have been able to visit the showroom and watch Mr.Ching create his art. The art shows passion and creativity, and true love for his surroundings. Each painting is listed in the online catalog on iCollector.com from Lots 1 to 10. In addition, there are several completed paintings up for auction that Mr.Ching painted during 2012 to 2014.
