Joseph Kai is a queer artist from Beirut, Lebanon. He has published several works with the Lebanese collective of BD Samandal Comics. Joseph has participated in numerous festivals and exhibitions in Beirut, Lebanon; Berlin, Germany; Brussels, Belgium; and both Angouleme and Paris, France. He is currently living and working in Paris. His debut graphic novel, Restless, is due out this month.

In Restless, Kai looks at what life would feel like without fear and oppression. Is it possible to find solace in the power of chosen family, underground art collectives, and ultimately revolution?
