Basingstoke Festival 2018 is proud to bring residents the amazing art of Kev Munday. The Basingstoke born artist creates positive, vibrant artwork inspired by people watching and the every day. Exaggerating and celebrating the ordinary. Kev aims for his art to appeal to all ages and make the viewer think and smile at the same time. His work takes inspiration from art forms as diverse as kawaii graphics and huichol yarn paintings.
“My goal is to make people think and smile at the same time and I hope that my work communicates as much to a seven-year-old kid as it does to a serious art collector.”
Kev has created artwork for brands including Walt Disney, Graham & Brown Wallpaper, Fracture Skateboards and Uni-Ball and his art is collected and exhibited worldwide. He was recently named by The Telegraph as one of five ‘British Artists To Invest In Right Now’ and was ‘The Best Selling British Artist’ on Artfinder in 2017. Further press features include BBC News, The Metro, The Evening Standard, Elle Decor, Design Milk and London Live.
