Kim Mobey’s painting, printmaking and sculpture focuses on global histories 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 and installation

A passionate advocate of autodidactism, Kim Mobey studied art history, sculpture, painting and printmaking techniques entirely through reading, independent observation and experimentation.
