Self-taught artist Kim Mobey’s painting, printmaking, installations and sculpture articulate a self-conscious outsider’s perspective on on global histories, leadership and contemporary cultural and political cross-pollination.

Her work is spread equally between traditional media and materials and experimental applications of new materials, techniques and mixed media including collage, calcite printing, sculpture, performance, installation and sustainable architecture

A passionate autodidact and educator, she continually studies and teaches art history, languages, sculpture, installation, performance, painting and printmaking through events, digital media and art internships at her Cape Town studio.
