Khairizal Anwar, a freelance concept environment artist. He is an artist who loves the challenges and to go beyond their comfort zone, adaptable and 200% motivated. He tells us about his source of inspiration and what motivates him when creating his artworks.
One thing I’ve to learn in my art life is that passion and commitment (with a bit of motivation) drives you to do it. Without one of those, you won’t create meaningful and satisfying artworks. – Khairizal Anwar-
What is your source of inspiration for your artworks?
I am a huge fan of “The Last of Us” and ” The World Itself Departed“. That’s why I am usually inspired by the post-apocalypse theme or nature in general.
What kind of technology, technical or software do you use generally?
I used Maya as my 3D base layer and brought it over to photoshop.
Why did you create “At peace”?
In relation to “At Peace”, I was inspired by nature itself and immediately asked myself, “What happens if it overgrew itself even more and someone stumbles upon it for the first time?” At the same time, I wanted to make something that is rarely seen but at the same time beautiful like an overgrown garden conservatory. This is to give the viewers a sense of awareness that it takes place within the same world. Before that, I usually include some storytelling in all of my works. No matter how small the details are. I will always tell myself that every object, pixels, or person must have a reason to be in the picture.
Why can this artwork be a source of inspiration for others?
Frankly speaking, it all comes to the person or artist, everybody can be inspired by something. I was inspired just by the word, “overgrown”. So anything can be an inspiration.
