The Artist with Multiple Personalities

24009 ratings | 896194 views
Kim Noble is an artist with a difference – twenty of them, in fact. After suffering childhood abuse, Kim's mind split into twenty distinct personalities to cope with the trauma. Over a dozen personalities are painters, including Judy the bulimic teenager, a gay man named Ken, and a mother called Patricia. While Kim was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID) and raising her daughter Aimee, she and her various personalities began painting as a way of understanding their own complex mind. Now Aimee is at university studying law, and Kim is a world-renowned artist who exhibits her work internationally. VICE meets her on the eve of her group show at the Zebra One Gallery in London, aimed at raising awareness of mental health in art.

Kim says more than a dozen of her different personalities (she has over 100) are painters, including Judy the bulimic teenager, a gay man named Ken, and a mother called Patricia. WATCH NEXT: Sleep Paralysis Inspired this Artist to Photograph his Nightmares - https://vice.video/2Eh6BOL

Our alters paint as well, it's nice to see how they have different styles and sometimes one painting is done by one than more of them. Good video, Vice and we wish them all the best.

Kim is indirectly involved with Hillary via the Podestas. The depravity and D.C. cesspool is deep!

DID don't exist. She ever has huge neurosis, fake it for "art" or is schizophrenic.

Thank you for this doc. Dissociation is such a misunderstood thing and affects you on so many different levels, even when you have a different kind of dissociation (i.e. not DID), which doesn't involve splitting. Kim seems like a lovely human being, I wish the absolute best for her. Art can be genuinely so empowering and therapeutic. And the thing about Ken and trains made me laugh...

Je me demande si les gens qui lui ont fait tout ce mal tout ces abus rituel etc qui lui ont déclenchés tout ces alters sont humains franchement c'est tellement horrible que je me demande si se sont réellement des humains qui peuvent faire ça c'est trop horrible je sais pas dieu nous a créé avec une conscience de la culpabilité mais la sa va vraiment loin moi je sais que je pourrais pas faire cela ou supporter

And what is the name of your original personalities
Rose O’Bryan (18 days ago)
I understand the trauma that she's gone through because of her disorder, but can you imagine looking at the art of 20 different personalities and knowing that you did all of it?

You gotta make a video about that dude with a black face mask. That dude is something

Notice how all the comments exposing this sick normalization of satanic ritual child abuse for what it is are all repressed and have only a few likes. This woman was involved in cult ritual and sexual child torture in order to envoke demonic alters in her, called "disassociative identity disorder." In fact, most if not all "mental illnesses/disorders "are a result of trauma (sexual, violent, etc...) instilled at a young age or even later in life. This same kind of trauma is practiced in child/human trafficking sex cults that operate worldwide by the rich and powerful who are above the law ans quite frankly a part of it. Most watching this video or subscribed to Vice have no idea what you're peering into here. Your entire reality is a lie and cover-up for a horror show that is being hidden just behind the curtain of the world stage you see on your TV, in your news, in your movies, etc... If you read this it's because you were meant to. Please wake up from your slumber and realize just what world you've been conditioned to accept as normal since your childhood God bless
Satanic Ritual Abuse 101. Just another satanic pedophile artist like so many others.
exodus K (19 days ago)
She's a victim too. All of these monsters were victims at some point. It's a vicious cycle. All we can do is pray for them to be released from their demons and pray for their victims.

Wow! I have no words!!
dumbcreaknuller (20 days ago)
they are all dead people. one of them are an old wicca. the pictures contain rape, sexual abuse involving many people. the pics are not from a pragnacny or mother and child. its of child rape by a adult. at 3:32 is a picture of symbols of witchcraft sorcery.
Rach Frisella (21 days ago)
Some people may think this disorder isn't real. I could kind of understand why. But I think it's very real. It's strangely fascinating, even though I know it's also very difficult and shouldn't be as romanticized as it is in movies...that's just my silly opinion though. And I wonder: are the personalities all there at the very beginning of a person's life? Does something trigger their development? If so, what triggers it? This is why I want to study the mind in one way or another. It's more complicated than we could ever understand, but I still want to try.
Star Buck (22 days ago)
She is like transexuals, just have more than one and being able to go back to the original personality

these paintings are incredible
Yeah and you fools don't know her background, this woman is a high profile witch.
J A (29 days ago)
the paintings by Rita are terrifying. It's clear she suffered extremely severe sexual abuse to the point of splitting her personalities. Capital punishment is the only solution for pedophilia
GrassyMania B (26 days ago)
I agree.

aimee became absolutely gorgeous💞
Leslie Blanton (1 month ago)
This must be the result of mk ultra style mental programming. I do not believe people get this way naturally, without any interference. Many people of her generation were used in those horrible experiments. The victims are still with us, collateral damage. The truth is still not exposed but I pray it will be.
exodus K (19 days ago)
Its still happening to this day all over the world to thousands of men, woman, and children behind closed doors and being perpetrated by powerful people in politics, business, entertainment, etc... This is what is known in the Holy Bible as the "last days"

Sara S (1 month ago)
Her body and mind have been through EXTREME trauma like sex with children, extreme torture & Thats how the split happens. These paintings arent just there for no reason. It makes me cry thinking abt other ppl like her in this world. This is why children are abducted all over the world! To satisfy disgusting cravings of powerful men out there that leave victims like her. If I could do one thing in my life is to expose such ppl. 😭
exodus K (19 days ago)

Wow Ria's(?) Art is shockingly beautiful.
Adara Relgnel (1 month ago)
So she doesnt have to motivate herself to make a painting. She just wakes up and 5 different personalities have already done them. Nice.

I am so touched of this art they do
Rozz Emz (1 month ago)
What a fabulous plethora of art!
Alexandra Marginean (1 month ago)
The average person walking on this planet who is not aware, spiritual, suffered some trauma (which is conflict without resolve) has suffered 22 different fragmentations which have developed into 22 different individuals with their own wants, needs, desires. They take over according to different triggers. For someone like Kim Noble and me who have suffered extreme trauma, we have thousands. ANYONE on this planet can mend the gap between their internal twins - polarities and integrate them with their central personality which they call by name, or the adult self. This can be done through somatic therapy, shadow work, shamanic work, parts work and voice dialogue etc. A lot of forms of therapy promoted by the mainstream medical system are abusive and solidify the gap between all these internal twins which in return solidifies one's feelings of loneliness.
exodus K (19 days ago)
The only real solution to healing the trauma that comes from this abuse is Jesus Christ. Now your alters may not like that but it is the cut and dry truth

Jay O (2 months ago)
Those portraits by Judy at the end were beautiful, so sad maybe she when thru some sra type of stuff I would be interested in her backstory. the art work by the trauma victim could be therapeutic to other victims but I do know that it’s enjoyed by some abusers as well

Americans really have mental health issues. They love abortion, Euthanasia, Assisted Suicide, pornography, etc.. All sorts of craziness are in the U.S.. I am glad that I was not born in the God forsaken place called USA!
Ritwick Karmakar (2 months ago)
Is she the inspiration behind the movie 'Split' ?
Krisynthia Gomez (3 months ago)
So couple things to say... 1. Is Kim the original personality or is Bonnie? 2. I feel so sad for Ria, and it’s so much worse because she’s clearly trying to tell Kim/Bonnie what happened to them, and 3. I’m wondering if Anon is a dominant personality because it feels like she references the other personalities in her work.
VolcanicGaming (3 months ago)
