Cade Roster was born in Honolulu in 1972. He grew up and continues to grow up in
Honolulu, though he spent four years at the Art Institute of Chicago. He has
been in a few Honolulu art shows of note, and his work has traveled here and there.
His work can be found in collections of the Honolulu Academy of Arts and the Hawaii
State Art Museum.
While he has been drawing for 30 some odd years, he considers a sense of play his
strongest asset. Medium doesn't come into mind as much as how enjoyable the project
might be. Thus, most of his body of work is somewhat hard to categorize, being that
a lot of it is experimental in nature, and process.
Cade is not fond of revealing much about his work, mostly out of the fear that if
someone learns what it is about, or how it was done, the work would cease to capture
the viewer's interest. Because of this fear, Cade spends many hours late at night
contemplating and scribbling indecipherable notes to himself.
