Super Future Kid is an artist who doesn’t take things too seriously. There is little room for fine-art codswallop when the very best of East and West’s pop culture come colliding together like asteroids of web culture, 1980s cult cartoons and donuts.

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 Kid’s personality and artistic identity. Kid is deeply fascinated with the perception and perspective on the world from the view of an adolescent mind, and particularly in related ideas of mystery and strangeness, games and playfulness.
