PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF
Hello! My name is Abdullah but I usually go by ARC or ARC4G online, I am a visual artist and a creative director.
HOW WOULD YOU BEST DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Minimalistic clean loops that hopefully entertain you for a few seconds.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO ART?
In short, I have SMA which is a rare neuromuscular disorder that results in the loss of motor neurons and progressive muscle wasting, so I couldn’t do a lot of physical activity and art was an escape where physical limitations don’t matter, I wrote several articles on my experience here.
WHO OR WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MAJOR INFLUENCES?
life and tech and how people engage with them
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR WORKING PROCESS?
My working process is mostly sketching around and having fun and experimenting till I get something visually nice to look at.
WHAT MOTIVATES YOU TO CREATE?
I was always fascinated by the act of creation, it’s so satisfying to work on an idea and see it come to life, a feeling hard to describe and most people should give it a try, create anything no matter how simple or complex, the feeling after you finish it is insanely satisfying.
WHAT IS YOUR STUDIO LIKE?
I don’t have a studio, just a regular room with a beefy computer for 3d design and rendering, but I always keep my workspace and sleep space-separated so I don’t end up in a loop of waking up, working, then going to sleep all in the same room.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
Many things but I’m mostly excited about experimenting with interactive web art.
