Owain is a artist and designer based in London. His work is known for its bold colours and experimental techniques merging both physical and digital realms.

His masters project titled 'Fragmentation' received a Distinction and was awarded the prestigious 'Dean's Award' following a successful exhibition in London. His research focused on post-industrial obsolescence through intervention and inhabitation. His current research explores the ship breaking industry and retired vessels, looking into ways these objects can develop a new purpose after life at sea.
