Khuan+Ktron is

— a fully equipped, heterogenically staffed graphic studio, dedicated to the manufacturing of brightly coloured and densely packed pictures of the floating world, illustrations, infographics and typographics, packaging designs, leaflets, brochures, pamphlets, maps and books, with a clear focus on arts, culture, education and non-profit causes.

— a warm shelter for wandering monks, ascetics and zealots, martial arts instructors, spare-time taxidermists, daisypickers, vegan cooks, flute-playing shepherds, off-season theme park enthusiasts and maggot-infested zombies, united by mutual interests and passions.

— also known as Kay-Kay, Kobbyhuan ende Kobbytron, Khuan Cavemen Co., Kwan Tung Lo, The Long Johns Of Yore and Yonder, The Daruma Crew and The Kargasok Clan.

Khuan+Ktron are

Ningtiendo Sehgah (Japan, born 1976) was raised by his aunt in Brussels, Belgium, with all the trades of a modern Japanese upbringing: manga, applied mathematics, 16-bit video games, fluorescent sweets and double school hours. At seventeen, he left for Antwerp to study the noble graphic arts, and after twenty years on the job, he still feels like he's only just starting — so much more to learn and see and do.

Steebz Khuan (Belgium, born 1976) "Don't mind me. I'm somewhere else."

Mikhail Mitmalka (Russia, born 1972) is proud member of Khuan brotherhood and speaks Asian European in gruff monosyllables. Mikhail is great-great-grandson of Wladimir Mitmalka, famous for painting grand icons with golds. Mikhail is self-schooled for drawings and paintings with nostalgic feelings. Chop woods for fires. Scare off monastery trespassers and wrestle wild boars. Work in ye gardens, with nature under sun and moon. Room and fresh air again.

Astrid (Belgium, born 1985) is a fleeting enigma.
