About Kev Munday

 
 
  • Biography
    Thank you for visiting my online gallery.

    I am a full time artist based in Hampshire, England. I have been selling my works on the Artfinder platform since 2013 and have had over 200 happy customers on here to date.

    I create positive, vibrant and cheerful works using a range of mediums; primarily acrylic paint and acrylic based marker pens on canvas. The majority of my work is created unplanned and I always work by hand. I like to move my art in new directions regularly, but subjects I am always drawn back to paint include people, animals, landscapes and cityscapes. Artists I admire include Keith Haring, 
    Takashi Murakami, Barry Mcgee and Andy Howell.

    If you want to see how I create my paintings, I have a few short videos of my practise in my 'Me At Work' section.


    I rent a studio at an arts centre in my hometown of Basingstoke, Hampshire and regularly welcome visitors here by appointment. If you would like to view a painting in person before purchasing then do get in touch to arrange.

    Kev Munday has created artwork for brands including Walt Disney, Graham & Brown Wallpaper, Fracture Skateboards and Uni-Ball. His art has been featured in Elle Decor, Juxtapoz, The Evening Standard, The Metro, BBC News, London Live, The Big Issue and Design Milk. Munday's art is collected and exhibited worldwide. 

    In December 2016, Kev was named in an article by The Telegraph as one of five 'British Artists To Invest In'. In 2017 he was 'The Bestselling British Artist Of The Year' on Artfinder, and held exhibitions in The UK, France, Belgium and The Netherlands and collections were presented at Art Up Rouen (France) and Lux Art Fair (Luxembourg). 

    Here's what The Telegraph said about my work in an article titled '5 British Artists You Need To Invest In Right Now', December 2016:

    Happy-go-lucky Kev Munday will undoubtedly bring a smile to your face with his unique style that defies age and offers up a distinctly off-the-wall approach.

    “My goal is to make people think and smile at the same time and I hope that my work communicates as much to a seven-year-old kid as it does to a serious art collector.”

    Deckchairs, violins, skateboards, clothing and buildings – there is no object that does not deserve the delights of Kev Munday. Using an assortment of mediums, from marker pens to digital art, Munday finds his inspiration from Japanese kawaii graphics, South American tribal art and the sheer energy and movement of colour. Munday is slowly but surely making his way to the big time having already been commissioned by Disney and Fracture Skateboards to brighten up their brands.
