Australia
Josh "KID9" Thorsen is an illustrator and graphic designer living on the Gold Coast. As a child of the eighties it's clear to see that KID9's work is heavily influenced by his childhood love of classic cartoons, skateboarding culture, comics and anime. KID9's earlier work exploded with bold color pallettes giving life to goonish characters and the world in which they were created, leaving the viewer experiencing nothing short of an LSD flashback. More recently, having experienced life as a father of 2 with partner in crime Kat Cameron aka TeamKitten, KID9's work has matured and become more refined using simpler but just as bold color pallettes and a much cleaner, individual line style. Working in the graphic design industry for the last 6 years has also strengthened his love for typography and letter design.

Consitently producing original, inspiring work since the late 1990's, KID9 has firmly cemented his position within the Australian lowbrow art and sneaker culture scene. He is regularly invited to participate in live paint installations and has exhibited in and curated solo and group shows worldwide.

KID9 has collaborated with some of Australia's leading streetwear labels and stores to develop clothing ranges, interior installations and branding including Mambo, Laced Sneaker Culture, Scribe Outlined, Sneak & Destroy, TRNRS and has also been featured in numerous publications including Semi Permanent (Aus), We Are The Image Makers, World Wide Designers (France) Peak Street Magazine, Colorink (USA), Libertine and Out4Fame.

KID9 is truly an all rounder, able to execute from conecpt to production on digital and traditional projects ranging from branding and identity to hand painted murals and installations.

Current Residence: Brisbane, Australia
