BIOWORKZ aka Ben Kwok Ornate Artist

​What is BIOWORKZ?​​​​​​​​​​​

I’ve always been inspired by H.R. Giger and his work has been defined as “Biomechanics”. Early in my artistic journey, I created lots of biomechanical illustrations. That’s how I came up with the moniker BIOWORKZ. It’s a moniker I’ve been using since college and it has stuck with me since.​

Who is Ben Kwok?​​​​​​​​​​​​
BIOWORKZ a.k.a. Ben Kwok is Southern California based graphic artist and illustrator. Born in Taiwan, raised in Los Angeles, art has always been a huge part of my life. When I could first use chopsticks, I was already doodling on whatever I could get my hands on. I love complex hyper detailed artwork. To lose myself into the “flow” of drawing is about as good as it gets. I’m very passionate about what I do, that’s why I continue doing it.

I was heavily influenced by the works of H.R. Giger, Alfonse Mucha. Now, I find myself being drawn into type/lettering inspired artwork. Especially works by Aaron Horkey, and David A. Smith. Their attention to detail is simply amazing. I can only hope to get as good or come close to their caliber. ​​

Illustration​​​​​​​​​​​​
​Highly detailed, rendered, polished illustration is what I strive for. I want the artwork to pull the viewer in and hold them hostage. I want the image to be initially striking, and when the viewer gets up close and personal, I want the image to unfold into greater details while the viewer absorbs the intricacies and attention to little details. That's what I personally love about illustrations and that how I would like my art to be perceived.

​Tattoos​​​​​​​​​​​
I love tattoos and I love drawing tattoos. Created many designs for friends, family and clients. If you’re interested in a customized tattoo design, please email at ben@bioworkz.com. Please note that I do charge a minimum of $1500 per design.
