"The 'notoriously harmonious' Billi Kid is a street artist determined to refine his voice while leaving an indelible mark on the over saturated urban and cyber landscapes. A life-long doodler, art enthusiast and design junkie, his work blur the lines between graffiti, pop culture, iconography and art.
Never to busy to look, feel and listen, his collaborative works with artist from around the world have been celebrated in both the media and street art community alike. His passion for the streets has led him to curate ground breaking exhibitions that have helped bridge the gap between the urban landscape and the sterile indoor environment.
Take a close look at it, smile at it, tear it or cover it with something new. From his hand to the streets at large."

Teal Herakles, Billi Kid, cut and power coated aluminum with aerosol spray stencil, edition of 15 per color.
"From artwork-to-icon metamorphosis, Billi kid's Herakles wall sculptures examine how some of the world’s greatest heroes re-enter Popular Culture. The limited edition wall sculptures embrace the vision of its original creator, 4th century B.C. sculptor Lysippos, while simultaneously revealing a facet of the collective mind throughout the ages. Exposure to the current technological innovations exercised in the creation of these forms allow for a unique opportunity to envision universal works that unite past and present. Meanwhile, the contrast between Herakles' powerful physique and his weary stance are echoed in this fine rendition of his head." -Billi Kid, on Teal Herakles
