The Rise of Digital Art

I can't help but be impressed by the recent digital art that I have seen surfacing all over the net. Laptops, iPads and drawing boards are definitely creating a whole new forum for artistic endeavours.

I stumbled upon this Japanese artist's work on The Creators Project (a nice blog to check out). They described the work as follows:

"Loneliness never looked so depressingly good. Variations of glittered deformations form the basis for a grotesquely beautiful motif in the works of Japanese artist 非(xhxix). Digitally sketching, drawing, and painting everything using Photoshop alone, 非 visualizes loneliness in his subjects and decorates them with scars, layers of geometric abstractions and floral imagery. As most of his subjects are young men, the artist explains that “boys are more suitable to express loneliness as women are emotional and powerful.”
Concocting images of isolated pain and an ethereal sadness into haunting depictions of young western men, 非 reveals a mystified insight into the depths of the Japanese psyche."

Absolutely beautiful.
