Kev Munday creates colourful, utopian worlds and invites the viewer to spend some time living in them. Inspired by people-watching and the everyday, Kev exaggerates and celebrates the ordinary and aims for his art to appeal to all ages. In the tradition of artists such as Hieronymus Bosch, Munday’s paintings can be read like a wimmelbilderbuch (German, literally ‘teeming picture book’), depicting scenes richly detailed with humans, animals, creatures and objects waiting to be discovered and interpreted by the viewer. Using bold lines and block colours, the vibrancy of Munday’s style creates an enthralling visual experience. His iconic crowd paintings depict a sea of unique individuals which pays tribute to the beauty found in diversity. Each individual portrait is equally valued, taken altogether, the effect is a striking vision of community which is more than the sum of its individual parts.
Now aged 34, Munday’s art has been exhibited in some of England’s most notorious galleries, including The Royal Academy Of Arts, The Arnolfini and The Hayward Gallery. He is regularly invited to produce artwork live at art fairs and events, previous performances include The Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam, Fresh Art Fair Ascot and London Fashion Week. Kev’s art is collected worldwide, with exhibitions taking place in France, The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany in recent years. Munday’s work regularly appears in auction houses, with a record auction price of €4700 (inc. fees) being set for the work ‘A Great Big Get Together’ in July 2020. ‘A British Artist To Invest In Right Now’ according to The Telegraph.
