ABOUT

AHSIN AHSIN is a multidisciplinary artist based between Hamilton, New Zealand & Melbourne, Australia. He graduated with a Bachelor of Media Arts (First Class Honours) from Wintec.

Ahsin has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand and more recently showcased new work at the Tauranga Art Gallery with his exhibition Neon Utopia as part of the international show Mega World. Moreover, he was recently involved in international street art initiatives in India.

Ahsin is compelled to create, his works are influenced by 1980s-90s sci-fi films and street art with pop culture references throughout. His imagination distills into creatures and sigils, graffiti mark-making and gestures, suspended in hyperspace. He works his neo-pop style across a variety of surfaces, seen on the street as murals and in galleries alongside fine artists.
