Rod Kitson is an artist living and working in London. His work is interested in the shared energy and empowerment of inclusive art, and focuses on the act of making the art rather than aiming for perfect outcomes.
He has been exhibiting since 2016. In 2019 he repurposed a disused shop in a shopping centre in South London to install a life-size replica of his studio flat made from 190 1sq-ft oil paintings. He set up a studio in the space and invited visitors to make their own work in the manner he made his – and sell it alongside his at the same price.
In 2020 he is launching Charity Shop of Art, a group show exploring the sometimes troubled relationship artists have with their own work by inviting artists to submit work which they weren’t happy with when they made it. More info and find out how to take part HERE.
