Highly fixated on the Mystery of art, 'Hawkkn' is Connor Ryan's mission to bridge worlds through imagery of the "beyond".

As a self taught digital artist & VJ, I have been on a quest to expose new worlds and new feelings through art since 2012. I am always humbled by the possibilities of new technology, since beginning with only an iPhone to edit photos and evoke feelings. My relationship to this inner world grows deeper every day as new tools and technology are learned. It is "beyond", because I do not understand it at all, it is simply beyond me. And for some reason, these feelings pair extremely well with music. It is my goal to maximize accessibility to this cosmic emotion. Recent exploration includes photobashed collages, rendering 3D fractals, animating glitch art, collaborations with AI, and ever-evolving VJ clips. The possibilities are boundless and I'm exploring them all.
