About Fandangoe Kid


London based print artist Fandangoe Kid makes large-scale narrative driven pieces for the public realm. Her work seeks to smash taboos around complex subject matters such as loss, trauma release, mental health and gender constructs. The artist has created work for a wide range of purposes, for example with her ‘Staircase of Dreams’ for London Design Festival 2020, working with young people to develop a collective narrative on daily activism.

During the first lockdown, The Fandangoe Kid redesigned nurse’s scrubs for Marie Curie x NHS London, working with a palliative care nurse via Zoom to develop the uniform, celebrating International Year of the Nurse. The artist’s work was shot for a feature about grief and mental health for Channel 4, looking at the importance of her practice in the pandemic. The Fandangoe Kid also works in film and screened her first short Into Your Light, directed with Tara Darby, at Tate Modern and on the Manhattan Bridge, looking at dancing as a tool for survival following great personal loss.
