Led by his curiosity and numerous passions, HAM the Illustrator exemplifies the phrase, “jack of all trades”. From moving to the UK to study architecture to pursuing a career in music production in Los Angeles, today, HAM continues to flex his multidisciplinary muscles as a digital artist. Inspired by hip-hop, anime and Afrofuturism, HAM has worked for the likes of Nike, Adidas and Warner Music, all the while developing Munkination, a trap-opera in partnership with the Royal Opera House on the side. Most recently, he’s also created a set of NFTs for music festival, Strawberries & Creem, featuring digital trading cards inspired by their 2021 headline acts. Here, we speak to HAM about staying humble, networking and the benefits of a social media cleanse.
