So, as you can see, he’s work sure has been noticed.
A true perfectionist, he keeps going further and pushing himself, as a result his portfolio is as inspiring as intimidating. “I want to come up with better concepts rather than rendering everything over,” he once said in an interview, “which is not an easy task because my brain got used to just rendering things.”
Raish was born in Seoul, South Korea. At the age of 3 his family brought him to the U.S. His educational path consists of SUNY Albany, that provided him with the knowledge of fine arts, Seoul’s Yonsei University and finally F.I.T. – Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, where got his Illustration bachelors.
“I want my work to be personal and with meaning. I want it to convey themes of identity, which is an issue to me as I am adopted and Asian here in America. Also my childhood spent in rural NY State town,” he says. “That’s a huge chunk of work, you know.”
