Eerie Illustration Work for A Separate Reality

Eerie Illustration Work for A Separate Reality

We have featured Alex Andreyev and his amazing and surrealist work so many times here on Abduzeedo. It's pretty easy to keep featuring him, he is always delivering some incredible illustration work. What I love the most is just how introspective this artworks make me feel. The title of the series explain that quite well, A Separate Reality, 17th edition. Looks like we are 16 posts behind but that's okay, check out the illustration set after the break and let us know what you think via Twitter and Facebook. It sounds paradoxical but digital art attracts me because it is free of technological influence. While in traditional arts technologies dramatically limit the artist – his ability to stylize works in graphics or extremely time consuming process of paint drying, in digital painting I sit in front of a screen, grab the stylus and see the result immediately. - Alexey Andreev Alexey Andreev is a Russian artist based Saint-Petersburg.

Digital Art and Distorted Perspectives by Aeforia

Digital Art and Distorted Perspectives by Aeforia

It's amazing how some styles and trends come and go. I remember in the 80s and early 90s when digital arts and CGI were at their infancy and one of the common themes were these surrealistic environments with 3D representations of people, most of the time with metallic or chrome look. It was all about that and then it evolved to something less futuristic, more graphical and dirtier. Probably heavily inspired by the movie titles of S7VEN, if you can remember that. Anyways, I have seen more and more people playing with 3D tools and creating images that bring back that nostalgia feeling I mentioned before. Aeforia, a digital artist I feature on this post illustrates that quite well with the digital art work below.  By focusing on different perceptions of the world that we live in... Aeforia is a digital artist, graphic designer and photographer based in Montreal, Canada. His work is inspired by nature surrounding him, space, geometry and distorted perspectives. "By focusing on different perceptions of the world that we live in, I hope that the viewer can be pulled in the surreal sceneries I create." - he mentions on his Behace page.  For more information make sure to check out http://www.aeforiadesign.com/ Digital art
