Mark Wee (b.1975) is a Singaporean artist, design thinker, and architect. Harbouring an imaginary universe of good vibes, strange creatures, and odd situations in his mind since young, Mark has drawn his imaginations on countless notebooks, which have led over the years to artwork commissions for The Singapore Dance Theatre, the Housing Development Board, Frank by OCBC, New Majestic Hotel, Tasty Plaza, as well as private commissions. After years of nudging from friends and family to 'share my artwork with more people', Mark is finally making steps to being more intentional about sharing his imaginary universe, hence, this website. So enjoy, and if my art makes you smile please follow my instagram at #markweedraws.
In his professional life, Mark is a pioneer in the use of design thinking in the shaping of innovative human centred experiences across products, services, and environments, as well as being an award winning architect. He has had the honour to represent Singapore at the 11th Venice Architectural Biennale under UNION Experience, where he was a founding partner. As well as started and led the Experience Design studio at ONG&ONG from 2011-2016, the group's strategic design and innovation practice. Mark is currently the founder and principal of ANNEX A/, a design and innovation consulting practice, and ANNEX A Architects, a spatial design and place making firm. He is also an adjunct lecturer at the National University of Singapore (NUS)'s Institute of System Science (ISS), teaching digital service design & innovation.

Mark’s drawings explore themes of hope and childlike wonder in the world. His artwork explores open narratives of life, and a childlike imagination of an alternative world nicknamed the Good Kingdom.
