Surreal Fantasy Art Paintings Inspired By Tim Burton And Hayao Miyazaki Created By French Dreamer Artist

“Darkness of life is more inspiring than happy and safe people”, says France-based Ciryl Rolando, one of the best digital painting artists in the world. He is best known for his artist name Aquasixio and his surreal fantasy art works emphasize the emotional aspects of humans and all the color spectrum of life.

There are surreal, fantastic pictures that show the way nature and human life intertwine in a metaphorical way. Fantasy is everywhere in his works, but fantasy is just the medium through which we are presented with the simplest and at the same time, most complex human emotions. They are exaggerated, if you want, to prove to us that emotions are all we have and all we deal with all our lives.

Love, hope, the unknown, art as a way of flooding a room with meaning are some of the themes the artist tackles in his works. Life is now and dreams are important. Our hearts are like accordions which should be played with carefully and our freest dance can be in chains without us even realising that. It is all written in his works. You just have to watch his works and listen.

“I like the absurdity, the creativity and the enchanting universes, where colours bring more emotions than thousands smiles or million tears”, says the artist. “Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki are both the roots of my own world. I like the surrealism movement, especially the work of Boris Vian and his ‘Foam of the Daze’ (L’Ecume des jours)”, states Rolando on his DeviantArt profile.

We say his works of art are a world in itself and one should walk carefully and with an open mind and heart in it. More info: Deviantart | Facebook
