Profile
Kuanth counts art and design as his absolute passion.

After toiling for five years in the publishing and advertising industries, Kuanth took a bold step forward to become a freelance illustrator in 2002. He also went on to sew some clothes, make a few dolls, daydream a little (a lot), exhibit some work and raise a lovely boy named Noody (woof!).

Kuanth loves old stuff with a story and flea markets are his favourite treasure-hunting wonderland for gems and inspirations. Kuanth also appreciates all things handmade especially crafts passed on from generation to generation.

With his passion for food, Kuanth opened a homely and quirky cafe called Caramel with a few of his best friends, serving hearty homemade food and offering a selection of handpicked vintage products from his many jaunts for the past three years.

Kuanth lives a simple life and he's loving it.
