Hieu is an emerging Australian artist who goes by the alias kelogsloops. He specialises in both digital and watercolour paintings, often depicting female portraiture as his preferred subject matter of choice. His work blends abstract and surreal art styles with anime influences from his upbringing. He paints with the intention of capturing fleeting and intangible feelings, portraying his figures suspended in time. Since beginning on his artistic career, he has adopted and lived by his motto, “Be right back, chasing dreams.”
Hieu started drawing as a child, often losing himself in his sketchbooks. He went on to paint digitally in 2009 after receiving his first Wacom tablet. In his final years of high school, he began experimenting with watercolour. Consequently, he fell in love with the medium and has defined himself as both a watercolour & digital artist ever since.
Hieu currently exhibits his work in galleries and maintains a presence on social media. He intends to continue his current projects and pursuits, hoping to one day have his own studio and teach.
