He hails from a small town called Balik Pulau, Penang, Malaysia. Currently, he is based in Kuala Lumpur as a graphic artist. At the same time, he aims to be a multi-talented artist by involving in arty projects such as massive vector, street art, painting, lomography, digital works and a whole lot more. This talented young man is known by the names AbdulRashade, Acit Raman Abdullah, Spacemaggot, Mogot and Na.Y.2.
Nowadays, he sees himself being drawn to working on manual art in his free time. He prefers playing around with acrylic and spray paint and sees them as a replacement for the mouse and wacom. He now sees doing paintings and graffitis as new elements that complete his soul. In creating a new style of graffiti letter, he mixes a hint of spice from the Asian culture with floral design and making these components his own.
(p.s.: At present, his vector works are put on a temporary hiatus)
While almost everyone started their creative journey with sketching on paper with a pencil, Abdulrashade started developing his skills by finger drawing on the ground in front of his grandma’s house for most of his childhood days.
