BIOGRAPHY

Saiman Chow has always been an outsider and uneasily defined. Starting with a move across the globe to a new country at an awkward age, to an unconventional career path, Chow’s restless curiosity has led him to pursue as a multidisciplinary creative over the past two decades. Chow received early recognition for his animations and has gone on to work independently, creating a dizzying body of works from magazine illustrations, product design, direct stop-motion commercials to collaborate with high profile brands such as Apple, Google, Facebook, Nike, Adidas, Samsung, The New York Times, Warby Parker, Pitchfork and Sonos to name a few. He now works and lives with his partner in a former textile shop .
