576 Notes

Japanese artist Xhxix, also known as Hi, creates multilayered digital illustrations that entrance the viewer with their subtlety. With a color palette that looks like the rainbow reflection on a soap bubble, a myriad shapes and colors can be seen in the watercolor-like wash of the works. Solitary protagonists that look like they might have come form a Morrissey song pout at the viewer, their distressed facial expressions always coupled with a sleek haircut. 

The figures’ bodies erode into candy-like stars and confetti — perhaps a gesture towards the pain that belies these characters’ external beauty. Take a look at some images courtesy of the artist.
