Discovering the artist’s cheerful work at the intersection of life and work.
We recently visited Super Future Kid, a painter and “kidult” who loves toys and everything that glows. Her live/work studio is located in Seven Sisters, and is occupied by figures, souvenirs, funny mugs, toys and weird objects, serving as “lucky charms” which create a crowded environment in which the characters in her works cohabit naturally with their surroundings. The artist usually drafts ideas in her iPad whilst in bed, allowing her the freedom to create at any time, “I find that I have a good balance between living and working in the same space, since I don’t really draw a line between those two, but they coexist nicely. Living couldn’t happen without my work and vice versa. The only downside is space, but that’s probably something that everyone who lives in a major city struggles with, I guess.”
