paul cupido

Kahmann Gallery is pleased to introduce Dutch artist Paul Cupido with his first solo exhibition in The Netherlands.

Cupido’s ongoing project ‘Searching for Mu’, is a deep exploration of the philosophical concept of absence, or ‘mu’, and the fragile beauty found in the evanescence of life. His residency in the Brazilian Amazon in 2018, was dedicated to examining the concept of the ephemeral and the symbolic affinity between the body and the earth. Letting go of the ego and reconnecting with deeper levels of consciousness are also important themes in this work, which so far has included two artist books, photography and film.

Paul Cupido (NL, 1972) graduated cum laude from the Photo Academy in Amsterdam in 2017 with the first stage of Searching for Mu. He won the Benrido Hariban Juror’s Choice Award in 2017 and was featured in New Dutch Photography Talent 2018 and GUP Magazine issue 57 (2018). Kahmann Gallery introduced Cupido for the first time at Haute Photographie 2018.

one to watch

Kevin Osepa (1994, Curaçao)

Kevin Osepa is a photographer born and raised on the island of Curaçao. His work revolves around his identity and the identity of Afro-Caribbean youth in a post-colonial world. The visuals he creates and the stories he tells are highly influenced by his youth. While the themes he explores are autobiographical, his work can also serve as a quasi-anthropological study. Using different experimental techniques he creates (colourful) visual stories that explore themes such as religion, African diaspora, and family.

 Osepa is currently based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He graduated from HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in 2017. He was one of the nominees for the prestigious Steenbergen Stipendium in 2017.
