In the color restrained world of Kidrobot Black, artists transcend current confines of technique and expression to both innovate in existing formats and promote the exploration of new ones. Kidrobot Black thrives on the untried, the unexpected, and the unusual.
Forging pieces that feature primarily black materials with minimal secondary highlights, Kidrobot Black frees the artist of the complications derived from color. These limitations compel artists to surpass the norms of material and form, and push past the line between consumer product and art, as well as between object and design.
Featuring darker themes inherent to the medium, and available in only limited quantities, Kidrobot Black distinctively unites higher and lower forms of expression as it draws production to the brink of unique.
Melancholic beauty and death cloaked in feathers. A headdress with shiny black eyes and sharp beak is mounted over petite downcast features. Massive hands hold the delicate chest. Bright, shining red escapes through the pointed digits – a sign of life in a sea of black. In the aftermath of an unknown event stands a 12-inch vinyl statuette. A lost life in a small metal cage lies at her feet with no explanation given.
Limited edition of 200 pieces, each is hand numbered with the artist's engraved signature on the bottom.
Self taught artist and habitual doodler, Craww plies his trade from the fair city of Sheffield, drawing inspiration from daydreams, music, comics, nature, gin and an overactive imagination, Often starting in one place and ending up in another, his work poses questions but seldom answers them. It’s direction influenced as much by accident and a short attention span as design, Craww enjoys seeing his creations taking on a life of their own as he paints. Craww likes ambiguity and his work explores his fascination with things that aren’t quite what they seem. Pretty things in dark places, nasty surprises masquerading in beauty, hidden stories and happy accidents, brought to life with a mix of elegance, balance and disciplined chaos. His work is a story without an end - a stream of consciousness ramble through the woods, populated with skulls, crows and melancholic girls with big hands.
