Started in 2018 and finished in 2020, the Flower Series are a series of watercolour paintings with some of my personal thoughts on love and relationships.
“Kaido Strange brings a unique inter-sectional perspective to his writing and comedy, having lived a life that is transnational, transgender, and trans generational.”
“This allows him to root his work in the borderlands of storytelling, where the real meets the fantastic, and the narrators are as unreliable as the idea of any one truth.”
“Kaido’s storytelling overflows into multiple media, from fine arts to stand-up comedy to oral history. He reflects the personal and the imaginary, showcasing a vulnerability that belies its own strength.”
“With a life lived fully from moment to moment, Kaido’s work struggles and plays with the transitory nature of time, reality, and identity.”
LB / Storytelling Consultant
When I was younger, I knew I wanted to work in visuals and storytelling. I loved recounting stories, telling stories--reading about stories, and then making up my own on the fly. I incorporated my sense of humour within my stories as I enjoyed making those around me laugh and at ease.
I took on my passion for visual arts and I went to study art at Ontario College of Art and Design University (Toronto, Canada) but I hated the structure of university and left after a year to live in London, UK. After spending a year in London, I then moved to Tallinn, Estonia, where I am currently based.
I began doing comedy in Tallinn at the beginning of 2019. I enjoy being on stage and making people laugh but ultimately, I still would like to work in storytelling. In the meantime, I'm still writing and I have a dedicated podcast where all my stories go.
