About The Author
I'm a freelance kawaii artist working under the alias of XkY. Since around 2008 I've been creating drawings and paintings that blur the boundary between dreams and reality. I'm particularly interested in evoking the feeling of an intangible aesthetic nostalgia or a "perfect dream from the past".
In the vast majority of cases, I prefer to work with traditional media like acrylic paint, watercolor or colored pencils. I believe there is something really inimitable and magical in the strokes of a physical brush or in the unique texture of a sheet of paper.
My inspirations include:
▲ Dreams, memories, emotions
▲ Japanese Pop-Culture of the 70s / 80s / early 90s
▲ The concept of Neoteny
▲ Superflat art movement
▲ Surreal and Naïve art
▲ Triangle-shaped objects
▲ Shoegaze / Noise / Ambient music
I would like to invite you to visit my dream world today! ♥
