Otherworldly world: dreamy illustrations by Cyril Rolando

Cyril Rolando, better known in the art world as AquaSixio, is a 29-year-old French psychologist and digital illustrator. Although he humbly doesn’t consider himself an artist, just another simple Photoshop user, his creations express the exact opposite. Exuberant illustrations, full of meaning and with colors so vivid that they hypnotize anyone like light for moths.

My artistic approach is set between surreal and fantasy style… in one word: Otherworldly. I never took art course that’s why I have few anatomy/perspective notions. I work with intuition to compensate for this lack of knowledge and venture into colors. I use only Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom tablet. I don’t know how to draw on paper support. (…) I’m aware my works don’t come within the scope of a high artistic richness. I don’t want to do beautiful things, but bringing out the difficulty to catch the emotional aspect in tiny, frozen, flat colored rectangles. Overall, I want to “tell something”, not only “show pixels”.
