Originally from Liverpool, UK. Ashwan is now living and working in Barcelona, Spain.

Describing his work as ‘a visual tao of the boom bap sound’, his influences come very much from the music and sub-culture of early hip hop and the decaying, post-industrial urban environments of the U.K. and U.S.

Ashwan graduated with a Masters Degree from The School Of The Art Institute of Chicago in 1999.
