ROBIN KID

The artist

ROBIN KID, a.k.a. THE KID, is an autodidact multidisciplinary artist from Dutch descent. His works hijack a variety of social, political and traditional imagery of the past and present, with rebellious, religious, fantastical and in some ways offensive undertones. He pulls intuitively from the world of advertising, the Internet, the entertainment industry and his childhood memories, to produce ambitious, enigmatic and thought-provoking narratives, which question the polarized world of the 21st century.

GALERIE TEMPLON REPRESENTS THE KID

Galerie Templon announces the representation of international artist Robin Kid a.k.a. THE KID.
Born in 1991, THE KID is a self-educated multi-disciplinary artist with Dutch and Brazilian roots and a true citizen of the world. His work restlessly questions the notions of social determinism and the thin frontier between innocence and corruption for today’s youth in the polarized world of 21st century.
Through photo-realistic and thought-provoking wall size paintings as well as life size sculptures, THE KID has gathered in only a few years as much attention of an informed public as well as of collectors and institutions in Paris, Basel or Miami.
The gallery shall present an important new piece at FIAC in October 2020. The artist will have a major solo show in May 2021 at the gallery, in the space of rue du Grenier Saint-Lazare.   THE KID in front of Not Normal, 2019 © THE KID
