Cyril Rolando is a digital painter from France and admires the universe of Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki. Starting using only an art website called Oekaki and his computer mouse, he spent two months experimenting with and mastering digital painting techniques. He then realized that if he wanted to continue to evolve as an artist, he must upgrade his instruments and started creating his artwork using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet. Still pursuing his studies by day, Cyril worked to recreate photos and how to create his surreal worlds where any fantasy or story was possible.
“I am self-taught; it started as a game, a hobby. I never took art course that’s why I have few anatomy/perspective notions. I work relying on my intuition to recompense the lack of knowledge and venture into colors. I’m aware my works don’t come within the scope of a high artistic richness. I don’t want to do wonderful things, but bringing out the difficulty to catch the touching aspect in tiny, frozen, flat colored rectangles.”, states Ciryl to Astrum People.
