Holly Kai Garden is located in the north-east corner of Holy Kai Estate, and is the home to our resident artist, Silas Merlin and our resident photographer, Inara Pey. Reflections at Midnight, an interactive art installation by Frankx Lefavre can also be found between the two studios.
Reached via the bridge connecting it to the north side of Holly Kai Park. the Garden presents the studios for our artists, together with an open-air terrace where Silas displays his sculptures, all of which face out over the beach and Caitinara Bar to one side of the sands. And of course you can always pop along to the bar and enjoy any of our DJ events.
About the Artists
Silas Merlin is a Maître Pastelliste of the Société des Pastellistes de France, where he is better known as Jean-François Le Saint.

His 2D images, all of his stunning and richly textured portraits and studies in pastels, are among the most unique images in Second Life, while his sculpture – 3D being a medium into which he has recently moved – are remarkable interpretations of his own art and of famous paintings.
