"Wald" ("Forest" in german) is a large format canvas that was part of Christian August alias KID CASH solo show "VERY NECESSARY," at Urban Spree Galerie in March 2017.
The title of the exhibition refers to his primary work in the public space and hints to the necessity for him of showing his artworks in the context of a gallery space.
In the middle of the 1990s, KID CASH started graffiti and to paint on public walls and to analyze surfaces, urban landscapes and architecture. The enthusiasm thereof still inspires his work. The departure point for his imagery are often spontaneous sketches and photographs that result from everyday situations and emotions. The sources of these are very diverse and range from landscapes and still life to letters and quotes from artworks of Picasso, Henri Matisse or Hans Arp. In his artworks, KID CASH transfers something felt into a poetic visibility.
The graffiti letters of the 1970s in New York and the German post-reunification subcultures in the 1990s still make an observable impact on his artistic vocabulary. Also, his name derives from common names as KID and CASH within the subculture. The depicted visual language is dominated by seriality, an important element in KID CASH’s narrative.
Kid Cash is a member of the Berlin-based Klub7 Collective.
