Kid30 is a Midlands-based artist with over ten years’ experience in graffiti and street art, with his work commissioned at legendary local venues including the Rescue Rooms, Rock City, Suede bar and Brass Monkey, and also the former Red Hot World Buffet at The Cornerhouse.
The Hoodwinked trail will run through the city for 12 weeks starting in July, and The Cornerhouse Robin will form part of the trail where the public will be encouraged to find the birds in a citywide game. The trail will raise funds for Nottinghamshire Hospice, when the Robins are auctioned off in October.
The Robin was kept under wraps in a top-secret location while the design was painted.
Charlie Truman, centre executive at The Cornerhouse, said:
“I have been lucky enough to get a sneak peek of The Cornerhouse’s Robin, and it will definitely be one that all of the family will love! It encompasses what we look for as a venue, fun and family, everything that this event is about. It’s super – that’s a little clue for you!
“Kid30 is a very talented artist and with his great work peppered all over Nottingham and the Midlands we couldn’t ask for a better person to leave our little Robin in the hands of.
“We can’t wait for the Hoodwinked trail to launch and we are thrilled to be a part of it and have the opportunity to celebrate everything that is brilliant about Nottingham, its people, its culture and its great venues, whilst also encouraging tourism. It’s fun to be part of a big community event that also supports a local charity.”
Kid30, the chosen artist to design The Cornerhouse’s Robin, said:
“I always love to create artwork in and around the city, that hopefully other people will enjoy. It feels great to be a part of this, and I’m looking forward to seeing the robin I’ve designed on the streets of Nottingham.”
