Artist Statement

A New World

What kind of a world were we living in?
What does it show us during this pandemic?

As the world shuts down with suspension of major industrial and human activities, pollutions — air, water and earth — are greatly reduced.

Levels of harmful gases like carbon dioxide have dropped so much that air quality in many cities has improved significantly. Marine stress is alleviated as cruise liners and maritime activities came to a halt; seawater became cleaner without commercial contamination. The Earth does not need humans who created all those chaos.

Inspired by the pandemic, I imagined a world after a reset — it revives with bizarre-looking plants in all forms and shapes, seemingly menacing, but full of hope.  

A new world is flourishing.

Artist. Designer. Maker. Daydreamer. Procrastinator. Life lover.

After dabbling in the publishing and advertising industries, Kuanth answered his calling and became a freelance illustrator in 2002.

Mixing art and design with food, Kuanth opened a homely and quirky cafe called Caramel with a few friends, serving hearty homemade food and offering a selection of vintage products.

His latest venture is Pentomime https://www.instagram.com/the_pentomime/ — a creative outlet inspired by the everyday life, specialising in designing and selling Asian-themed lifestyle accessories.
