KELLY SUEDA | writer


How of­ten does one get to meet a liv­ing leg­end? Honolulu-based artist, art con­sul­tant, and gal­lerist Kelly Sueda, could not have been more ex­cited to meet Irv­ing Blum for fea­ture "Th e Im­por­tance of Be­ing Irv­ing" on page 102. “Talk­ing with Irv­ing about the very artists whom I 've stud­ied and ul­ti­mately bor­rowed/ stolen ideas and con­cepts from through­out my ca­reer was fas­ci­nat­ing,” Sueda says. “I felt I had climbed into Doc Brown's DeLorean and gunned it to 88 to visit Andy ( Warhol) at his stu­dio in the 1950s.” When not in­ter­view­ing liv­ing leg­ends, Sueda cu­rates both pri­vate and pub­lic spa­ces. His re­cent projects in­clude the Yayoi Kusama pump­kin at Ala Moana Cen­ter and cu­rat­ing more than 500 orig­i­nal works for the Park Lane con­do­minium prop­er­ties.
