Kevin Osepa

Kevin Osepa was born in 1994 in Willemstad, Curaçao. He is currently based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He graduated in Photography in 2017 from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU), Utrecht.

Osepa’s work revolves around his identity and the identity of Afro-Caribbean youth in a post-colonial world. 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.

Recent exhibitions of his work include a.o. Salon '18, Museum Flehite, Amersfoort (2018); Who do you think you are?, TENT, Rotterdam (2018); Unseen, Westergasfabriek, Amsterdam (2018); Fotografiska, Haute Photographie, Stockholm (2018); Volkskrant Beeldende Kunst Prijs, Stedelijk Museum, Schiedam (2018); Steenbergen Stipendium, Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam (2017).

Kevin Osepa is the receipient of a 2019 Mondriaan fund Young Talent Grant.
