About Kev Munday

English artist and illustrator based in England.

Kev Munday creates colourful utopian worlds and invites the viewer to spend some time living in them.

Education

Starting his artistic career at the age of 16, Kev's first creative endeavours came in the form of street art; painting walls and leaving stickers, paste-ups and other markings on street furniture. It wasn't until a few years later that a friend and fellow artist suggested he transfer his artwork onto canvas and he found an instant attraction to the surface. Building upon the style he had been developing in his street work, Kev continued to work with spray paint and markers, using the vivid colours and bold lines that are still present in his work to date.

Inspiration

Kev Munday creates colorful 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.
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.

Exhibitions

In November 2017 Kev Munday held his first solo show abroad with Vintage Deluxe in Maastricht, The Netherlands, a collection of 50 paintings which sold out during the ten day exhibition.

Awards and Highlights

At the start of 2018, Kev Munday was awarded an Arts Council funded exhibition at Showcase Gallery in Southampton, England. This entailed a three month residency focusing on art in the public domain and culminated in a series of public artworks including a permanent art trail across the city, made with the input of local residents.

Further recent projects include a 15 metre tall mural in Düsseldorf, Germany, live painting at The Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam, a pop up exhibition in an elevator and a hand painted police car for his local constabulary.
