SUPER FUTURE KID
Lives and works in New York
Super Future Kid was born in East Germany and spent the first eight years of her life completely unaware of the western world. The cultural shock that followed the fall of the Berlin wall left a great impression on her and plays an important role in her love for bold colors, toys and everything joyful and playful.
Super Future Kid's work is largely based on themes that strongly relate to certain ideas of childhood and youth; a time that still has a great influence on her personality and artistic identity. She's deeply fascinated with the perception and perspective on the world from the view of an adolescent mind, and particularly in ideas of the mysteries and strangeness associated with being grown up. Those ideas include the realms of character identity, curious behaviour and spirituality as well as games and playfulness, and lastly the idea of the freedom of the youthful spirit itself.
