  • New Print Alert: Kii Arens Releases "The Red Planet"

    Kii arens the red planet prints on wood

    Kii Arens is an Minnesota-born contemporary pop-artist, graphic designer, photographer, director and musician as well as the owner of Los Angeles' La-La Land Gallery. Arguably, Arens has lived a pretty fascinating life thus far. He grew up in the Twin Cities music scene inspired by his musically inclined family and by the mid 1980s, Arens was DJ'ing around the state-- even stumbling upon a brief stint in rap music opening for quite pivotal hip hop acts such as Gang Starr, EPMD, DJ Quik, among others.

    Through music, Arens was exposed to many other elements of creativity that would become important fixtures within his life. Beginning in the realm of music and stretching outward into visual art, Arens used his self-taught knowledge of graphic art and design to create album art work, package layout, photography, poster design, creative direction, music video direction, merchandise design/creation and music production. Although Arens was an avid creator of visual art throughout his youth, his career as an artist was only really kicked into effect after solidifying a design gig for the Woodstock '94 festival, offering key creative direction for a contemporary way to commend but not emulate the iconic 1969 event.

    That same year, Arens began working for Niceman Merchandising where he supplied design and layout for an expansive number of projects. Within the agency as well as alone, Arens has executed design work for a number of notable musicians including: Dolly Parton, Ziggy Marley Pete Yorn Radiohead, Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, DEVO, Diana Ross, Lana Del Rey, The Pixies, Glen Campbell, Tame Impala, Beach Boys, The Replacements  and many more. He also has created prints for various widely attended events such as Bonnaroo and Coachella.

    Obviously, you can see just why we are so elated to chat about Kii Arens and share his very first Prints on Wood collaboration today. Arens has worked with us to bring forth a 12 x 12 in. fine art wood rendering of his painting "The Red Planet," available exclusively through POW beginning Wednesday, August 24 at 10 am PST and ending Wednesday, August 31 at 11:59 pm PST.

    Because each print is hand signed by Kii Arens with rockstar artist love, the prints will ship out beginning September 16th. For more information about Kii's "The Red Planet," and to make your purchase, head here.
