About The Artist
From a young age, Kiat has indulged his love of science fiction, music and art, culminating in a DJ residency at Singapore super club Zouk at the age of 20. In 1998, he met the acclaimed creative director, Theseus Chan. Under his wing, Kiat won his first four Creative Circle Awards; he would later go on to win awards at the One Show, Young Guns, Clio and New York Festivals, amongst others. Music continued to play a huge part in Kiat’s life, and while he won numerous awards in art direction, he made his mark as the first Singaporean to be signed to renowned UK label Metalheadz, run by Goldie. Locally, Kiat has also been a driving force in the electronic music scene, seeding communities through his co-founding of collectives including now-defunkt Guerilla and currently Syndicate. In 2012, he setup System Sovereign, a multi-disciplinary branding and design agency with Cherry Chan where they spend most of their time working on projects of love, both for clients and themselves.
