It is not to be forgotten where this eager young artist is from! Malaysia is not exactly famous for uncensored creative freedom. The penalties for illegal artworks are often treated the same as for actions of illegality in general. The term “don’t worry it’s only paint”, does not apply in Malaysia. Thus, it is even more impressive that CLOAKWORK manages to approach his work with humor, vibrance and an unspoken sense of positivity.
Contemporary Asian graffiti writing for a world audience
The doors to graffiti are also global. And in 2016, CLOAKWORK embarked on a self-funded journey to many major countries and cities of the world resulting a liberating breath of fresh air to his ideas and artworks. Not to mention a little more experience under his belt to create new ways of making art to share back home.
If CLOAKWORK has been too stealth to be on your radar, maybe you missed his collaborations with major brands such as Adidas, Volkswagen, BMW, Converse, Warner Music, Hypebeast and Tiger Beer to name a few. It’s time to take a look here and familiarize yourself with Malaysian Graffiti Artist, CLOAKWORK.
