Kim Mobey 

Contemporary Art

Welcome to the Studio

Born in 1980 in Cape Town, South Africa, my lifelong focus on art, science, engineering, and music began at an early age, shaping a lifelong pursuit of curiosity and creative exploration. I sold my first sculptural artworks through a commercial gallery at age 16 and I was immediately converted to the ancient practice of making a living directly with my hands. 

Drawing from personal history, psychology, and anthropology, I make artworks that look for human connection.  Themes of home, loss, belonging, and "otherness" are your invitation to consider the patterns of thought and behaviour inherent in out mutual humanity.

I fundamentally want to challenge generational pathologies at the intersection of art, science, and philosophy using aesthetics as a tool to dig into the discoverable truths that bind humanity together, transcending cultural barriers and time itself.
