Cyril Rolando is a psychologist and a freelance self-taught artist whose impressive work will instantly absorb your attention and lead to you to assume that it was done by a professional artist. In reality, this talented artist has never attended art school and instead learned all he needed by himself.
Known as Aquasixio, he spends his free time creating surreal digital art using only Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Intuos 4M graphic tablet. He characterizes his work as ‘’otherworldly’’, featuring a beautiful array of bright, vibrant colors in each piece. Inspired by Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki and curious about life, society, and human revolution, Rolando’s works are an amusing parody of reality. They tell an enchanting story about his life and his way of understanding the world.
Telling a sad story through joyful colors is one of Rolando’s favorite approaches, as he is always looking to find the balance between darkness and brightness. His paintings include dream-like color combinations and a lot of amazing details that are truly eye-catching.
Since his beginnings in 2004, the artist’s style has changed and developed until he became what he is today. In the meanwhile, his art has spread across the internet like wildfire, gathering millions of views.
