ART:TECH    /ARTS    /MOTION    /ABOUT    /FEED    /EVENTS    /STORE

Art:tech is a self taught artist, illustrator, designer, motion graphic designer and drummer from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


These days, he thinks a lot about how the world works, questioning physical reality, understanding existence, and addressing those subjects through his work. The aesthetic of cultures & religions, the human advancement in technology & science, Transhumanism and the Resource Based Economy movement attracts him and has since become the influences in some of his recent artworks.


The combination of traditional drawing and digital graphic is a symbol of merging two world into one; the analog and the digital, the old and the new, the art and the technology. Art inspires technology. Imagination creates reality.
