"When the new world order burns, they will quote you" - UBIK, b.1985 is an Indian artist living and working in Dubai , UAE. His work charts various mediums and is heavily influenced by Film, Beatnik / Gonzo literature, Music, Street art , Anarchism and Existentialist thought. His work urges the viewer to explore their reactions and emotions in a cynical , yet often sarcastic and humorous way. The core of UBIK's work deals with the relative ideology of chaos in the form of an absurdist playground, and the underlying cliches associated with mankind.

Teaching in New Zealand for 5 years he moved to the UAE in 2008 where he teaches Art & Design in Zayed University while maintaining a thriving freelance career as an illustrator. Illustrating and drawing is his passion, dedicated to exploring the limitations of the discipline and challenging perceptions of this field.  He uses a love of music, film and books to fuel his inspiration and provide new cues and ideas, and immerses himself in the visual environment.   www.skkm.net
