Art:tech is a self-taught artist, illustrator, designer and drummer from Kuala Lumpur. Steam-punk, weird characters and the aesthetics of cultures and religions are manifest in his artworks, in which he combines traditional drawing, illustrations and digital graphics.
Through his works, he tries to express and combine the things he sees, the things he feels, things he remembers and the things he’s learned. The ideas come spontaneously, combining everything he experiences, sub-consciously creating images that later get projected through his drawings. Rarely does he come up with any concept sketches before drawing the final piece. Much of Art:tech’s work is basically first-hand and spontaneous.
He sees his artworks being similar to the dreams we have while sleeping. It’s a mixture of what we’ve seen and experienced in life, to which he adds his own imagination. It’s very spontaneous and unexpected. Just like how we dream, we know not what will appear. Sometimes, dreams can be crazy and we don’t even know what they mean. Somewhat similar are his artworks. He doesn’t plan what he’s going to draw next. He loves to let people figure out the meaning of his works from their own point of view; just like how we try to figure out the meaning of our own dreams.
