Ethereal Digital Paintings Capture The Look Of Loneliness Loneliness never looked so depressingly good. Variations of glittered deformations form the basis for a grotesquely beautiful motif in the works of Japanese artist 非(xhxix). Digitally sketching, drawing, and painting everything using Photoshop alone, 非 visualizes loneliness in his subjects and decorates them with scars, layers of geometric abstractions and floral imagery. As most of his subjects are young men, the artist explains that “boys are more suitable to express loneliness as women are emotional and powerful.” Concocting images of isolated pain and an ethereal sadness into haunting depictions of young western men, 非 reveals a mystified insight into the depths of the Japanese psyche.

What's great about his work is that it can be enjoyed by everyone. the art of iain mccaig O dear and patient people... I am sure, by now, that I have set the world record for the longest 'Coming Soon' website in web history. Should you pop on over to www.iainmccaig.com, you will find that it is still almost ready, a phenomenon that must be driving visitors almost as crazy as it is driving me (but not nearly as much as it is tormenting my saintly webmistress). I know this is where I should reveal the amazing secret behind the delay, but honestly, it's just because I keep choosing to do other things, like write a book, or design a movie, or play with my family (but not because of watching the TV--I got rid of that timesucker years ago).
