Mide Kadiri



I love telling stories through drawings and paintings. I love making large pieces of art. Art has given me the ability to appreciate my surroundings, treat those around me kindly, and reinforce self-positivity. Art has let me express the unfathomable, to communicate my unexplainable emotions and to connect with our world of diverse peoples. By creating public art, I can express myself at a greater level. I can connect more with people that I might never talk to in my life. That’s the power of public art. To inspire those that we unknowingly cross paths with every day.


Mide Kadie is a multidisciplinary storyteller who uses art to tell complex and visual stories. The mediums he practices with are ink on paper, digital arts, film and video, painting, murals, and exhibitions.
