Bio

My name’s Iain, and I go by the artist name Enox.

I’m a New Zealand artist and illustrator based in Hamilton.

Inspiration
My art is inspired by a bunch of things which I pour into my work. They’re a mix of graffiti art, pop culture, 80’s cartoons and Japanese kawaii characters. What I aim for with my art is to make people smile, laugh, to be inspired, and just for a moment, to take their minds off the stresses of life and enjoy the energy and positivity of the characters I create.

Process
I work mainly in digital illustration either within Procreate or Fresco apps, and I also work in mixed-mediums on canvas and wood. I’ve also worked on outdoor murals such as the Boon Street Art Festival, and more recently with Ten Hundred on his mural here in Hamilton, New Zealand.
