Dreaming in Mech: The Art of Nivanh Chanthara

Explore a futuristic universe where robots take the forefront and plunge you into a post-apocalyptic world of the unknown.

Today, we’re happy to announce the third art book of the ArtStation Media collection, Dreaming in Mech: The Art of Nivanh Chanthara.

Nivanh Chanthara has lived and breathed concept design for more than 20 years. A lifelong passion for mechs and dedication to his craft has fuelled his journey from graffiti artist to designer of iconic creations in TV, game and film. Dreaming in Mech: The Art of Nivanh Chanthara presents a remarkable body of work exploring mech, cyborg and vehicle designs from sketches to finished concepts, and reveals Nivanh’s creative strategies in a series of illustration and photobash breakdowns. 

For the first time, you can now preorder the book and be one of the first to get it in your hands before the global release.

Preorders are only available to customers with a shipping address in the United States and Canada. International shipping will be available via Amazon at the time of the book’s global release in early April. 

“Dreaming in Mech is a huge milestone for me which collects over a decade’s work. I love the production quality of ArtStation’s art books and honestly I feel like my artwork looks better on the page than it looks on screen! ” – Nivanh Chanthara

The artist behind Howling at the Moon

Jakub Rozalski, is a Polish artist best known for his World of 1920+ series, an alternate 20th century European history that combines war and the industrial revolution with mech robots and folklore. His worked served as the basis for the popular board game Scythe, the Iron Harvest video game Kickstarter and several unreleased projects to come.

Inspired by his surroundings on the Polish countryside, his work captures the nostalgic atmosphere in rural landscapes while incorperating colossal giants, ominous machines, werewolves and lonely wanderers.
