Artist bio:
"I'm self taught. I was born in 1980 in Panama City, FL to a painter and a carpenter. I was raised on the Smurfs, Snorks, Thundercats and He-Man cartoons. When I was six, we sold everything in a garage ale. I made an impressive $20 selling my He-Man action figure, Castle of Grayskull, GI. Joe's and every little thing I had. I thought it would be fun to put my money in a small wooden box and bury it with a long white string tied to it, coming out of the dirt. It would be my buried treasure. I never found the money. We weaved around the US from state to state in an RV. I slept above the driver seat, in a loft style bed, which I thought was the coolest thing. Toward the end of our journey we went through Death Valley. Running around in Scooby-doo underwear, it was hot, and a bag of ice cost us $3.49 in 1987. We settled down in Scottsdale, AZ. When I was 18, my son Brennan was born. I relocated to New York on August 26, 2009. I married my wife Heather on October 12, 2014. Our son Hudson was born at the end of 2015." Billy Kidd is represented by Walter Schupfer in New York, LA and Paris. Fine art representation by Masters and Pelivan in NY.
