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 many disciplines, while developing his unique approach over the past two decades. His works range from illustration, design, animation, fine art, directing, stop- motion and live-action. Chow’s ever evolving style can be described as maximalist, psychedelic and surreal, with a large pinch of absurdist humor.
