Aberdonian mischief painter KMG kicks off Nuart’s ‘artist residency’ line-up in her home city. KMG is the first of numerous artists to take to the streets of Aberdeen for Nuart 2021, armed with raw, bright character art and a healthy dose of rebellious attitude.
KMG is a Scottish based artist, illustrator, printer and painter. Her curious nature leads her work to explore themes ranging from the precarious to the mundane, often of a subversive nature. A weird combination of youthful enthusiasm mixed with utter cynicism leaves her work with a sarcastic, raw and yet playful tone.
These brightly coloured & tightly stylised personalities, presented in often-raw, borderline-chaotic compositions, are used as her means of connecting with the public, and engaging them in dialogue around ignored or overlooked issues that exist within society.
“We’re incredibly happy to announce that we’ll be back on the streets of Aberdeen this Summer with a series of projects we hope can give everyone a lift – by reconnecting with those spaces and places that have become a part of us” said Martyn Reed, Nuart founder and creative director.
