Mark Chai is an award-winning, Hawaiian-Chinese sculptor whose work has been seen in the New Yorker, House Beautiful, and Home magazines, and on MTV's "Real World." He shapes fine woods, environmental and recycled materials, and soft light into flowing curves that embody recycled conceptual works, lamps, fine wood sculpture, large installations and furniture. His work is commissioned by architects, interior designers and private collectors, including legendary musician Herb Alpert. About Mark Chai.

The Hawai'i State Art Museum purchased Mark's piece, "Opala Gone Wild," (at right) recycled art representing our overflowing landfills. Named by Honolulu magazine as "one of Hawaii's hottest designers," he has won awards in juried art shows and has been featured in the media.

His commissioned work can be seen on O’ahu at Downtown restaurant at the Hawai'i State Art Museum, "town" restaurant in Kaimuki, The Contemporary Museum Café, and the American Savings Bank corporate headquarters (above).

One of his latest works is a limited edition table lamp, "Obama, Light of Hope." See the YouTube video at KHNL-TV news. Constructed of recycled material, only 10 will be made. He presented one to Maya Sotero-Ng, the President's sister.

Mark Chai arts are sold in Santa Monica at the Gallery of Functional Art, on O'ahu at INTO on Hotel Street, The Contemporary Museum shop, Fishcake Home, Na Mea Hawai’i and to the trade at Fine Arts Associates.
