Atas by Amicus Atman

Visual Art

"The artwork presented aims to explore the notion of going somewhere, detaching oneself or changing perspectives through getting lost. Whether it is through thought, movement or even experiences, our mind can be tickled to the diversity of our surroundings and senses.

'Atas' takes us on a journey, with some direction, to see what is out there and maybe to try something new ourselves.

Using the cardinal directions, and aspects of mythology with a sprinkling of psychedelia we have created digital illustrations to tell a story that leads our character, up, and out of place of not knowing."

"As artists, creators and experiencers, we aim to discover new things all the time, sometimes learning about something new, remembering what was forgotten and most importantly, to feel.

The chance to create work, learn and be part of Ahead of the Curve which is such a valuable program alongside other amazing creatives has been dimension-shifting and life-changing."

Presented as part of MAV’s Ahead of the Curve program.
