The Colorful Shapes of Kindah Khalidy
View Slideshow

I can’t look at one of California-based artist Kindah Khalidy’s paintings without smiling. There’s something about her artwork that instantly makes you feel happy. Maybe it’s the bright colors, or perhaps the child-like shapes, but all together, it’s one whirlwindy wonderland of whimsy. The paintings are abstract but they very clearly contain shapes that exist around us. Every time I look at one of her works, I see something new… from cacti to taxi cabs to clouds and mountains, even UFOs! What do you see?

Kindah has worked with brands like Anthropologie and Old Navy, has designed clothing, and also designs textiles. Her latest collaboration, a line of hand printed/painted clothing + accessories with a fellow textile designer Julia Busenitz, called Julia X Kindah, will be available soon. She is also planning a show for later this year so keep an eye out for that by checking her website, kindahkhalidy.com, or follow her on Instagram. You can shop her paintings here.
