How an Artist as SKWAK can change the way you see New Technologies, via @davidmerzel’s BLOG
Yesterday, I had the chance to meet SKWAK at FNAC Brussels – Toison d’Or (picture here-above).
SKWAK is a French artist specialized in illustration, characters design and graphic design.
He created his own graphic world populated by creatures with an exagerated look, fed with absurd : the “Maniac World”. His universe is perpetually evolving, getting richer, and finds its place, its codes.. It’s a huge playground completly crazy, polluted, coloured and laidback. ” His world is constantly changing and extends in various fields like music, computers (computer mice, QR codes, Social Media, …). Discover his Universe HERE.

Yesterday, I’ve attended a workshop at Fnac where Skwak has developped a work directly with public participation. The work has been printed and distributed to participants.
Microsoft recently announced its latest series of “artist” mice. SKWAK designed the artwork for this wireless mobile mouse 3500. New BlueTrack technology means it can be used “even on a rough park bench or your living room carpet” and this is very cool … You can buy it at Fnac in Belgium …
