HALOZ WUZ HERE is a collection of work expanding on the notion that
everything and everyone has both good and evil. Playing with the
juxtaposition of singular and multiple images (all while using the
same sized canvases), the show is a study on how these characters
dispositions changes to the viewers prospective. Adding to this
study, this is the first time that Kidlew (as a colorblind artist) has
expanded his color palette beyond the usual Black characters found in
all previous works.
Born Chorean (half Chinese / half Korean) in Queens, NY, Kidlew took
to Pop culture immediately. Drawing influences from Looney Tunes to
Disney, Kidlew was off to the rat race. It wasn’t long before Kidlew
got involved with skateboard culture while listening to punk, gansta
rap and heavy metal. Kidlew first experienced graffiti and street
culture while riding the subways in the 70’s with his grandmother.
After he saw his first Keith Haring subway piece, it wasn’t long
before he found his way into the street art world. Influenced by the
entire NYC pop scene of the 80’s Kidlew has taken everything he grew
up on and thrown it back into the blender to create what he deems
“HALOZ WUZ HERE”!
Kidlew has shown in a variety of group shows around the world
including the U.S.A., Europe and Japan. A few Kidlew highlights have
been the Carlton Arms mural next to Banksy and the “Who’z On Deck”
show with LA2 at the Sacred Gallery NYC. For more Kidlew go to
Sacred Gallery NYC is located in the heart of SoHo.
