With reference to a uniquely Australian coastal upbringing, Kris Andrew Small connects the dots of his unlikely trajectory into a psychedelic constellation of work: lucid textural pieces, photo-based collages and kinetic type-based compositions that vibrate off the page with their own brand of hyperactivity.

In Small’s world, the saturated colours of a tropical adolescence float in defiance of the grid, kaleidoscopic patterns embody an overactive mindset, and explosive typography continues a long-standing tradition of radical protest art from the fringes of club world. It all serves to connect an energetic aesthetic with coded — perhaps hallucinatory — notes on modern identity.

Following a decade working as a designer and art-director for high-flying clients around the world, Small has since refocused his practice as a full time artist. He continues to work from his studio in Darlinghurst, Sydney and exhibits in solo shows around the world.

“With a distinctively bold and unencumbered visual language, Kris’ work is also hard to define and often the result of multiple influences and experiences. These early influences are clear across Kris’ portfolio of kinetic type, photo-based collages and “lucid abstract pieces” but it’s his abandon when it comes to producing work, that really makes it stick.”Ruby Boddington - It’s Nice That
