Kain Picken is an Australian born artist currently based between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China. His practice develops between different modes of creative production and cultural contexts engaging questions concerning value, authorship and the generation of meaning in contemporary culture. Employing appropriation as a starting point, he uses existing and reconfigured objects, images and text to reflect on the economic, cultural and social surfaces that construct our day-day-realities. He is the co-founder of the design collaborative ffiXXed.
