Kamal Siegel (b. 1978 in Punta Arenas, Chile) is a Chilean musician [1] and digital artist.

His music was featured on an album produced by Grammy award-winner KC Porter called Temple of Light [2]

The compilation features one of the pieces from Kamal's album "First Steps" that he launched in 2005.[3] The album (First Steps) was recorded and produced in Chile by Faro Producciones and later self-published in the United States.

In addition Kamal is a published digital artist. His works were featured in Tony White's book From Pencils to Pixels. Kamal continues to curate and exhibit art shows where he lives near Seattle, Washington.

In March 2006 Kamal was appointed by the Redmond City Mayor to be part of the Redmond Arts Commission [4] where he helped found and shepherd one of the first ever Digital Art Festivals. He remains the founding director and primary organizer of the event.

Siegel began his career in the arts at the age of 17 with a solo exhibit of his works at the Municipal Library of Temuco, Chile. In 1998 Siegel left Chile and moved to the Seattle area of the United States to pursue a career in the animation arts and in 2004 founded his own production and animation company.[5]

Kamal is also the founder of Digital Double, the first company on the west coast of the United States to offer markerless motion capture services [6]

In December of 2012 Kamal produced one of the first ever products to be mass manufactured through 3D printing alone called Armature Nine.[7] [8]
