Digital artist’s London show is love letter to beating anxiety ‘thanks to art’

The creative said he did not want to continue living with constant panic attacks as a teenager but vowed to help others...

W1 Curates presented KidEight, a self-taught digital artist, motion designer, and Photoshop savant who had spent the first 15 years of his career as a freelance graphic designer. His ruthlessly consistent creative execution had made him somewhat of a masked vigilante in the music industry, responsible for conceptualizing and producing iconic mixtape covers for global superstars and hip-hop sensations.

As described by The New York Times in the past, he was an eccentric master of Photoshop and logo reappropriations, with a finely honed sense of the absurd. KidEight had worked with Atlantic Records, Def Jam, Future, Gucci Mane, Fabolous, Moneybagg Yo, Chris Brown, and virtually every rapper and hip-hop icon since the turn of the millennium.

Despite being based in the UK, KidEight's early obsession with mainstream Western pop and internet culture had contributed to the establishment of his idiosyncratic art style, breaking the mold of the somewhat codified industry standard for mixtape cover art.

In 2021, KidEight had transitioned from taking client work to focusing on launching his own counter-culture brand by leveraging Web 3.0.

From vibrant murals to awe-inspiring sculptures, KidEight had brought together an extraordinary collection of artwork that celebrated the boundless imagination of young artists. Each piece had told a unique story, capturing the essence of innocence and untamed creativity.

The exhibition had been a tribute to the exceptional talents of their next generation of artists. It had been a testament to the power of art in shaping perceptions and reminding everyone of the wonders of childhood.

W1 Curates Oxford space had been transformed into a haven of artistic brilliance, and they couldn't have been prouder to host this marvelous display.
