Studied at The Royal College of Art with fellow student David Hockney

Michael Kidd says he tends to 'think in terms of numbers'. He is fascinated by 'patterns and mathematics, the poetry of the indecipherable'. Kidd's modern art shows his characteristic pleasure with what he calls 'playing with different perspectives - giving the illusion of the reality, and keeping it simple'.

Whilst, of course, Michael's work is defiantly uniquely his own, perhaps it is the artist's fascination with Alfred Hitchcock that has laid the foundation for his work. Michael says "I love the odd and quirky feeling you get in his films, something sinister or mysterious which helps move the plot along. I quite like playing with different perspectives - it's not about perspectives, it's more about perception, which is the way you see it rather than the way it should be".
