Ahsin Ahsin is a Cook Island-born artist currently living in Hamilton, who made a name for himself through exhibitions in Melbourne, Tauranga Art Gallery and Tautai centre for Pacific Art (Auckland). After graduating at WINTEC, the artist refined his style and crafted his aesthetic trademark(s), mostly immortalized as murals throughout New Zealand. His works reveal a nostalgic and at times dreamlike engagement with popular entertainment and technology of previous decades. Visually Ahsin incorporates early internet imagery, late 1990s web graphics, street art, reptiles, glitch, 3D rendered objects, unnatural hues, sci-fi and cartoons.



Starting from his love of 80-90's of sci-fi movies and anime, Ahsin takes spectators to the deep unfolding grounds of our collective imagination, where extra- terrestrial creatures exist by means of graffiti gestures.
