On August 26, 2011, Kai L. Greene stepped onto a new kind of stage for the first time. Greene had his very first art show where he presented a series of large paintings on canvas. He displayed original pieces that were the fruits of his labor and vision.
Most of the pieces were completed during his preparations for the IFBB NY Pro and the rest were completed in the middle of his Olympia prep. Both the journey as an artist and as a bodybuilder were tied together in time, but as Greene explained they had even more in common:
“As a professional bodybuilder, I’m a master sculptor. The art show made me realize that I’ve always been an artist: My medium the human physique. My life is what I make it, just like the art I’ve produced on canvas and on stage. This art show makes this statement. I’m celebrating some personal accomplishments and my own artistic expression.”
FLEXonline extends a huge thank you to Joyce Vanseters (www.joycecvanseters.com), owner of Fitness Professionals and the event planner for Greene's show. Ms. Vanseters was kind enough to provide FLEXonline with exclusive photos from the event.
Everyone at FLEX is proud of Kai for this great accomplishment and we look forward to his next success in two weeks on the Mr. Olympia stage!
