Streets by Medness

As part of its ongoing global initiative to uncover and highlight the most promising emerging artists from across Asia, Tiger Translate has commissioned 20 artists from Asia Pacific’s most vibrant cities from Yangon to Manila to visualize the pulse of the streets in their city. The artworks will be displayed at a series of ‘Streets’ themed and curated events and exhibitions across the world, including the recent Tiger Translate festival held in Auckland last month and which will be heading to Dubai in January.

Singaporean artist Medness was selected to be in this project and here he tells us more about his artwork:

1) What are your inspirations behind your artwork?
The inspiration behind the Tiger Translate artwork was from my experiences with the ‘street’ culture when I used to spend an enormous amount of time flipping on my skateboard in the city streets while everyone else is prepping for work or sleeping. Thus I enjoyed working on this piece!

2) Can you tell me more about your background and what are you doing currently? 
Coming from a multimedia background, I’ve managed to experience different kind of projects from videography to web but eventually my main interest for aesthetics has led me to exploring and further studying graphic design. I’m now a full-time freelance graphic designer / illustrator.

3) What are the next projects you are working on?
I’m currently busy with branding and infographic projects but apart from that do keep a look out for my collab with the outeredit guys soon.
