We are quite fascinated by Veng Han’s obsession with meatmen. Let’s find out more about this very unique young artist:
1. When did you start developing a keen interest in drawing meatmen?
The inspiration came from biology. I have a keen interest in fungus, bacteria and virus. Then I thought of the flesh virus. A bunch of goofy flesh monster scattered all around the world trying to eat.
2. Who is your favourite artist? Did he/she influence you in any way?
Meatcanyon is one of my favorite artist as he makes very disturbing monstrosity.
3. If your art style had a name, but it can’t be your own name, what would it be?
4. Which fictional character would be the most scary to meet in real life?
The most scariest character would be Harry Squatter from The Chamber of Gains.
5. What does imagination smell like?
Imagination would smell like a blend of soya sauce, salt, sugar, black vinegar and a lot of onions.
6. Describe your artistic style.
My art style is basically draw a the face of your goofy monster. Add as many limbs as you want. Have not-so-good fingers and toenails. Add lumps, and paint it red.
7. What did the blue crayon say to the purple crayon?
The blue crayon taste better than the purple crayon. The blue crayon would invite the purple crayon into a cryptocurrency scam. Then the purple crayon would make poor financial decisions and become bankrupt.
8. Besides art, what other hobbies do you have?
Sleeping, breathing, eating, exhaling, inhaling, performing exchange of substances in my internal organs, perform egestion and excretion. Trying to find out what I am going to draw next. Watching Youtube videos. Doing my homework. Running to the nearest Macdonalds to buy some fries.
9. Are artists weird people? Why?
Artists are like a table. You do not know what to do next.
10. What is/are your weird habit(s)?
Thinking that is someone is in the room and saying hello to nobody. Thinking what happens if historical figures like presidents, dictators and scientists were in a street fighter game.
