Born in Kochi and trained in Architecture from Hindustan University, Ashwin worked as an architect for a year and on that journey realised that his true passion lies in graphic design. Being a designer has helped him balance his artistic cravings while finding real-life solutions. He believes art should provoke, stir emotions, transport you to other worlds and he has been striving to do the same with his art. He feels digital art has opened up endless possibilities and democratized the art space from being aspirational to something that caters to the masses. Currently, Ashwin lives in Kochi with his dog Patch and runs his own design studio, ‘Studio Lore’.
