Psychologist Digitally Creates Surreal Stories Inspired By Hayao Miyazaki And Tim Burton

Posted on Art 197

France-based Ciryl Rolando is a clinical psychologist with a talent hidden under his artist’s name Aquasixio. For awhile now Aquasixio has been making a name for himself by creating intricate digital paintings of surreal worlds that mix beautifully with our reality.

In his otherworldly works Rolando experiments with the emotional side of people and the effect colors have on it. “Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki are both the roots of my own world. I like the surrealism movement, especially the work of Boris Vian and his ‘Foam of the Daze’ (L’Ecume des jours),” Ciryl Rolando writes on his DeviantArt profile. “I like the absurdity, the creativity, and the enchanting universes, where colors bring more emotions than thousands of smiles or million tears.

Just like the creations of his idols, Rolando’s artworks have this sense of poetic sadness about them, as he says himself: “darkness of life is more inspiring than happy and safe people.
