I don’t know much about the work of xhxix (in fact, nothing at all), only that he’s a Japanese artist. His work is done digitally, though from the looks of the pieces above I doubt you could tell. His portraits are always brightly colored with a bit of an abstract, surreal edge to them. The men portrayed have this bizarre realness, an energy that he’s able to capture quite beautifully.
