Indonesian artist Arkiv has been painting, illustrating and designing cartoon like figures since 2005. Shortly after finishing his Bachelor degree in Architecture he plunged into the art world citing his love for drawing figures as his inspiration for this change of career path.
I recently met the technically astound and visually appealing artist in his solo show going on this December at Vinyl on Vinyl called; Out Of Nothing. It's happening at The Collective.
If Kaws was for me the premiere pop artist right now.. Arkiv would be the abstracted version of his works.
