— Kami, YOU KNOW ME WELL, is a German-born, Berlin-based artist and designer. His work sits between fine art, pop-, and bootlegging-culture.

Busy in the late 90s writing graffiti and DJing across Germany, Kami follows the call to help open a club in Shanghai in the early 2000s. Initially, to support music programming and talent booking, he became the club's bespoke Art Director thanks to a bootlegged Photoshop copy from a street vendor around the block.

Continuing to develop his signature collage style, heavily influenced by travels all over Asia, the DJ's design talent was soon enlisted to create artworks, branding, and visuals for other artists and DJs, clubs, and festivals around the globe before he decided to focus solely on his own career in 2018.

The detailed and complex works are Kami's reflection of his world. Blurry neon-made punchlines are sitting on a playground of nostalgic memories - paying homage to Asian good luck symbolism and street culture. Created with a mix of tools ranging from digital, spray-paint, ink, and oil.

He has collaborated with several music labels and apparel brands such as SONY and REEBOK, and worked with Pop and Hip-Hop Artists creating custom works. He's designed a daily calendar (2021 & 2022) using punchlines, and several collectible boxes, including print editions. Headwear, T-Shirts, Silk Scarves, Luxury Weekender Bags, and a workwear collection - expanding 2022 into the NFT Metaworld.
