About the Artwork:
Life can often feel like fighting to keep your head above water in rough seas. We should remind ourselves to enjoy the ride, and let our inner child renew our energy.
About the Artist:
kEda is inspired by contemporary/lowbrow and pop surrealist movement, which finally “allowed” for the exploration and indulgence in other forms of artistic expression.
Apart from exploration in concepts of identity and gaining a sense of permission to associate with various cultures (of one’s birthplace), kEda is also fascinated (more like obsessed) with myths and fairy tales. They are a constant source of inspiration and reference helping to explain complex (modern) moral and social topics. Along with various other childhood elements such as toys and games, finding that the innocence creates both a palatable and a potent dichotomy when handling everyday topics in politics, identity, and society
