Something that caught me, inspired me, made me fall in love, comforted me, taught me something new, or made me want to live a hundred more years. Everything here deserved my favs. They are absolutely wonderful and they made some few seconds of my life worth living. :D

I should be the one thanking you for your art. :meow:

She was a monster who lost the sharpness of her fangs,
Who ran away to hide inside an old, mystical cave
With faded black and white photographs on wooden frames
Hanging on its cold, uneven walls.
There were dozens of fireflies dancing in the shadows
To which she compared the beauty of the stars.
There were cracked mirrors and cobwebs and broken clocks
And old binoculars with dusts permanently embracing its lenses.
There was a tiny forest at the bottom of the cave
With miniature trees and lakes and stagnant rivers
Where the three-inch rainbow-bearded goats and one-eyed faeries play.
She spent the whole afternoon sitting on a small flowerbed
Beneath the cracks where the sun was shinning --
Dazzling and serene, magical and quiet,
As she read thousands of tales about the real big things.

Iyan de Jesus
Philippines
Painter | Illustrator | Graphic Designer | Frustrated Storyteller | Action Star-Wannabe

Self-taught artist Iyan De Jesus, softens the metallic edge of steampunk with pliant alabaster skin. Each painting is a pastel-hued post-apocalyptic technofantasy suffused in color.
Holding court against a background of mechanical complications are nymph-like cyborgs—more human than robot—whose dignified expressions hide stories rooted in mythology, literature, snatches of song, and fleeting moments between lucidity and sleep. To help viewers divine a work’s narrative, De Jesus camouflages elements among a multitude of gears: owls, hearts, snowflakes, gas lamps, and totem poles all serve as subtle bearers of meaning.

The attention to minutiae, obsession with geometric compositions and patterns, cleanliness of lines, and smoothness of surface hark back to De Jesus’s background in architecture and computer-aided design. Unlike formally trained artists who went from canvas to screen, De Jesus started “painting” with a mouse before she shifted to brushes and glazes. The jump from digital to traditional was a rebellion against the ephemeral nature of bits and bytes, as well as a surrender to the soul’s desire to create something lasting.

Each painting demands more than a cursory glance. Those who linger and look will be rewarded by the unexpected lyricism disguised by steampunk’s retro-futuristic tendencies. In between pulleys and wheels lie images that summon the sound of the sea, the slow and steady beat of the human heart.

Great work. It reminds me a bit of Gustav Klimt somehow :)

Wow - found your gallery through the daily deviations.  Great modern take on Kilmt's style of artwork.  Really great!  ;-)

Thank you :) It's an honor to be compared to him, but I must say I never really cared about Klimt back when I started painting this style, neither I was inspired by any of his works. :)
