The Airbrush Studio - Custom Airbrushing
Kim Gladwin

I am a self taught airbrush artist based in Pretoria.
I have been airbrushing for more than eighteen years now and I run a reputable business as artist and am the owner of The Airbrush Studio.

I specialize in automotive airbrushing and custom graphics, painting everything from custom motorcycles, helmets and hot rods, to canvas illustrations.

I have a B Tech degree from the Tshwane University of Technology, specialising in make up and property construction.
I worked at the State Theatre for three and a half years doing make up and creating stage decor for operas, musicals and ballets.
After I left the theatre, I worked as a freelance decor painter , honing my painting skills and working on really amazing projects all over South Africa.
I was however always fascinated by custom airbrushing and graphics on motorcycles and hot rods. I then had the good fortune to meet a custom bike builder who taught me the ins and outs of the spray painting side of the business. I worked alongside him doing all the custom spray painting and airbrushing for about three years.
I found myself wanting to focus more on the airbrushing side of things being an artist at heart, so decided to make a move and go out on my own.
I have tried to remain at the forefront of custom airbrush art and I pride myself in making my artwork original and of the highest quality.
Each piece of artwork I produce is unique and created according to a clients specifications. See samples of my work here.
The Airbrush Studio was established in 2008 and I have never looked back. I have had the opportunity to meet amazing people and make their dreams come true. It’s been a great journey so far.
