Damien Soh (b.1988), more popularly known as Amien, is a visual artist based in Singapore. His artworks are immediately recognisable for their dream-like quality and touches of surrealism, giving birth to a fantasy Universe filled with characters both familiar and unknown.

Amien’s creations stem from an alternate reality existing within his mind, built upon his experience growing up in Singapore– a city both highly modern yet filled with traditional and oriental influences. Drawing from that breathing, living world, he translates these visions into abstractions of colour, before refining them with obsessive technicality resulting from his years of teaching and practising in both the traditional and digital medium.

With a specialty in conceptualising new worlds and portraiture, Amien’s portfolio has seen a focus on digital paintings in recent years. He has also dabbled in alternative forms of presentation, such as a triptych printed on skateboards for a piece commissioned by Wise Singapore. In 2018, he received widespread recognition for the conceptualisation and execution of a short animation feature titled Pagoda of Peril for Universal Studios Singapore as the Lead Illustrator. His skillset has also enabled him to take on freelance work with multinational corporations such as Unilever on multiple brand campaigns, handling roles like Art Direction and Storyboarding.

Holding to the belief that constant practice is key to mastering illustration regardless of age, Amien co-founded Art Attic in 2018, running illustration classes for adults. The studio saw 260 students pass through its doors within its 1.5 years of operation.
Currently, his work considers the juxtaposition of traditional rituals in the frontier of a digital age, a reflection of the city he resides in.
