Phil Kwan is a tattoo artist residing in Vancouver, BC. Phil graduated from the Art Institute of Vancouver in 2005. He has provided services in character and hard surface modeling, lighting and composition, layout and rendering, level design and concept art. Since then he has worked for clients such as Mattel, Nickelodeon, YTV, Electronic Arts and some others. Challenging times during the recession led to an opportunity to further his skills, and in 2009 Phil began his tattoo apprenticeship. He is also an instructor at Visual College of Art and Design who currently takes on limited freelance and tattoo clients. Philip does not believe he is a jack of all trades, but his “versatility” is a product of strong art and design background and more importantly an unhealthy, fanatical work ethic depending on how you look at it.
