Apocalypse Kowloon: The Dystopian Art Of Nivanh Chanthara

1

Nivanh Chanthara is currently a concept artist at Eidos Montreal, working on undisclosed next generation projects. You may (or may not) know him for this conceptual work on Eidos’ critically acclaimed smash hit Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

The Art of Nivanh ChantharaHis concept art career has taken significant leaps forward lately. Nivanh’s penchant for conceptualizing dystopian urban environments is well known. But it’s his mysterious personal project, Babiru, that’s really peaked the interest of internet communities. Chanthara develops many of these Babiru concept pieces by taking existing military photos as references and wrapping his own design and look about it. He also sprinkles in elements of Middle Eastern fashion, bio-mechanics, graffiti, cyborgs, mecha, and Asian inner city influences. All of these elements create futuristic dystopian images that are unlike any we’ve ever seen before. Most of which are far more interesting and compelling than we’ve seen from the recent rash of young adult dystopian novels and movies.
