Basel based artist The Umbrella Kid is a close friend of our magazine. And we are proud to present one of his new works here on KALTBLUT. “I.M.NEMESIS” is another great black and white shot. Yes the young artist is very gifted.
If the Umbrella Kid shelters under his pseudonym, it is the one conceit by a photographer whose work has swiftly been honed and simplified during his short career. The Umbrella Kid’s first images were made casually, photographing friends; he did not even use his own camera. But certain graphic and geometric elements of those first photographs four years ago resonated with him, and thus began an ongoing obsession with the production of images.
“The Umbrella Kid was born free in 1985 and lives and works in Basel. In recent years he has had solo exhibitions at Galerie Daeppen and Hinterhof in Basel and Galerie ArtSeefeld in Zürich. In 2011 during the ewz selection event in Zürich his work was selected by a jury of international experts to win the Julius Bär Foundation Photography Prize in the category Fine Art.” – Aoife Rosenmeyer
