⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The names; King Wasabi and IAMKW are both aliases that represent me and my artworks from an Artistic point of view.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I am born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and now I am living in the United Kingdom. My works are more primarily focused on artworks, whereby I draw during my free time. But I am occasionally optimistic about branching out more, to thing like; Computer Graphics Animation, Digital Graphic Designing, Computer Games Technology, Video Games Environmental design to mention a few.
​⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I am a self-taught artist who covets extreme detail within my artworks. I am very perceptive and passionate towards my artworks, and they consist and are based on the Intellectual Concept of Hyper-realism and photorealism. I include paint within my drawings, because they increase another aspect of drawing. My main focus is on coloured pencils and markers. I strive to create exotic imaginative artworks while using simple and ordinary materials, that you can find for a reasonable low-cost. My drawings vary from different insightful ideas, but largely consist of cars.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀My main source of inspiration is by observing works of art and seeing how an artist does his or her works, really breaking into the artworks beyond its surface. I also get inspired by reading books and watching videos of artworks and other influences, also from spending time with my family and friends. But most importantly, by observing nature and idea/concept of trying to re-create an image by drawing.
