Arben Vllasaliu is a 3D artist and motion designer from Kosovo, now based in Basel, Switzerland. He is known for his enthralling animation artworks which simultaneously hypnotize and satisfy the mind. His artwork blends aspects of expressionism, surrealism and abstraction for a fully satiating effect. Experimental in nature, Vllasaliu style breaks boundaries and is constantly transforming: Sometimes subtle and soft, other times sharp with contrast and saturation.

Vllasliu’s creations have garnered international praise and he’s done a number of collaborations with huge names such as Justin Beiber and brands like Twitter Art House, Dr. Pepper: Canada Dry and more. He’s received multiple awards including TheWebby and TheOneShow / ADC Awards.
