Each month Fotolia showcases the work of a super-talented digital artist. This April, Marumiyan from Japan unveil his creation.
Marumiyan is an artist who is inspired by music and he loves to “paint sound”.
With skills belying his young years, Marumiyan has already participated in several expositions and international art collectives.
He has also published the book ‘Photoshop and Illustrator Artworks’, edited by MdN, and organised the visuals for one of Japan’s biggest live music festivals, Minami Wheel.
His style is decorative and he uses flowers, animals and women to enhance his artwork. The reason for this is he believes they reflect a natural sophistication, which has allowed him to work for clients such as Wacom, Panasonic and NTT Docomo.
“I took on the TEN project because I found it interesting. I figured I could create even more elaborate and attractive photomontages through the use of Fotolia’s images.” he explains. “The images make the artwork more powerful. As a graphic design teacher, I also appreciate the learning and pedagogic aspect of the project, which helps others learn.”
His design for TEN, entitled simply ‘ON’, is based on Japan’s iconic bonsai tree, and eloquently built around his theme of choice: sound.
Complete with speakers, amplifiers and cables, Marumiyan’s visual symphony is a sight to be seen – and heard.
The PSD file for his design will be available for free download on Wednesday, April 10th, from 10am for 24 hours at www.tenbyfotolia.com.
