EEPMON is a Millennial hybrid new media artist exploring the creative intersections through the usages of art and technology. He has collaborated and worked with various projects both in art and technology with firms and galleries across North America, the U.K., and Asia. He has held several shows and won awards internationally. He says, “Technology provides a new area for innovators and artists to experiment and develop new modes of creative expression.” He sees the computer as an artistic tool, just like the paintbrush, and with a desire only a truly passionate artist could have, set out to generate dense, dynamic, and beautiful digital graphic compositions that attracted clients such as Marvel, Canada Goose, Microsoft Xbox, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. His creative and innovative nature is inspiring and has allowed him to transform retail stores into art exhibitions for his creations, combine open-data weather and color to create artistic works, and more. Currently EEPMON is doing his digital artist in residence at Algonquin College Applied Research and Innovation Center in Ottawa, Canada.
