Mishko: Reality (I find myself questioning it)
Nevan Doyle AKA Mishko has been creating for as long as he can remember. He prides himself on his attention to detail and efficiency and is constantly challenging himself to make each piece stronger than the last.
Mishko made this digital art in photoshop and animated it using a combo of digital and analog techniques. It was during a pivotal period in his life. This piece marks his departure from years of freelancing, giving up, working a job he didn’t like, the rinse & repeat lifestyle. He now understands that we truly do create our own reality. The melting colors and ethereal atmosphere of this work repents his old reality, morphing into something new and beautiful.
“This is an animated remix of the piece that really changed the course of my life. This series quickly caught on and within two years recreations and inspired-by pieces started popping up daily. I was in a pivotal moment in life when I made this artwork as rumination on the power of manifestation and the societal limitations we’ve become accustomed to—a reminder to break free and create your own reality.” — Mishko
POSTWOOK: Til Dawn, 2020
Natasha Chomko AKA Postwook is a Los Angeles-based digital artist who creates otherworldly landscapes by splicing together elements of nature and the cosmos to create ethereal universes found in your dreams. Her work consistently pushes the boundaries of color theory, texture, and depth to bring new ideas to life.
Til Dawn illustrates the cold journey ahead into a moonlit horizon over a surreal scene of the northern lights. This piece lets the viewer immerse themselves into an alternate reality dreamworld where mountains are stacked and colorful, no life is around them for miles, and it's just them and the road. This piece is meant to demonstrate the loneliness we feel often in life to remind us that we are truly all that we have.
“I made this piece to represent the loneliness and capture the depression I felt in 2015 when I had a seemingly tight knit group of friends but never felt more alone in my life. I remember one night in particular when I was trying to fall asleep while the sun was coming up and all I could do was watch the sun poke through the blinds. I was completely alone, and I remember how bone-chilling that truly felt; it was one of the first times I truly felt how dark life could get.” — Postwook
Renderfruit was one of the first women pioneering 3D digital art in a unique surrealist style, and currently resides in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Driven by inner thoughts and influenced by music, her art can be eerie, eclectic, multi-layered and surrealistic. Her art was exhibited at The Times Square, the Denver Clock Tower and she has a permanent collection at the Brooklyn Museum of Moving Images (MoMI).
“The piece is inspired by the fresh, humid forest environment from the Amazonas. She feels the primal, dense smell of blood by receiving a holy bath by many ancestral divinities living among the shadows, in a lonely secret ritual.” — Renderfruit
Skeeva: B.O.R.G. Sisters
Eugene Golovanchuk, also known as Skeeva, began his career as a self-taught Art Director and Digital 3d Artist with a life enveloped in 3D dark-art surrealism, captivating in its cyberpunk flare. "B.O.R.G. Sisters" is a piece from "B.O.R.G." series created by Skeeva in April 2020 during the peak of the pandemic. The whole series was shaped around female characters. Mothers, wives, sisters and daughters living through different feelings and emotions during global pandemic madness
“I'm that type of person who was always trying to find his niche in this crazy evolving world of CGI art. After years and years of exploring and doing thousands of both personal and client work starting in dark fantasy, creating cyberpunk characters or some weird abstract stuff I ended up in digital fashion. And It feels good. Because all of the explorations that I've been doing for years now have a form and shape. Meaning I can drop some old but wild textures or shaders from my "surreal" period on top of the modern street wear hoodie and it works great!” — Skeeva
