Self Portrait - 2024

Karan (करण) Singh is a visual artist based in Naarm (Melbourne)
Australia.


Singh has worked as an artist, creative director and consultant defining visual languages for use in fashion, technology, music and more for over 15 years.

Artistically, Singh’s interests lie in the banality of shapes and objects which often feature as the subjects of his work. His explorations investigate how we transform the banal into the extraordinary by implanting them with hope, ritual and nostalgia.

His art lives in an eclectic variety of mediums, from prints and sculpture to clothing and augmented reality installations.

Through his career he has lived and worked in New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Malmö, Sydney and Melbourne.
