Davida Kidd

Vancouver, Canada

Davida Kidd is a very accomplished artist from Vancouver, Canada, who has received international acclaim for her original and thought provoking multi-media art works. Working primarily with photography as the final means of display, Davida includes her own self-designed fonts and painting as back drop for her photos, as well as installation and sculpture. Though linked to the “Vancouver School” of artists such as Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham, she has, over the course of her career, developed a recognizable style entirely her own, very unlike any other artist working with photography today.
