Often times I see great artwork online but the artist isn’t mentioned and it’s very hard to find out who made it.

Even with this one, although it’s a LP limited edition cover for Boris/Joe Volk. After some research I found what I was looking for.

The artist!

Xhxix is a Japanese artist who works on digital paintings with a lot of young men as his theme. It has something melodramatic, hopeless, sad but painted with all kind of colours mixed together, which gives it an odd feeling.

I love it.

    These are amazing. To see angst so delicately and beautifully depicted makes them feel mournful to me.
    Thanks for sharing.
