Hi! I'm Christo, I started my communication design school in 2014. After graduating, I was sort of bored with design work. Because a graphic designer usually makes work for the benefit of others (just my opinion). One day, I found interest in seeing people who have outstanding digital art skills. He makes unique artwork on the basis of his will, his passion, his honesty, his imagination, and his personality. That's why I started to learn about the world of digital artists.
Why did I choose surrealist artwork? Creative ideas came to me when I saw a surreal collage artwork on Fajar P. Domingo's Instagram. His photo manipulation work is very precise with my personality. Because of him, I found many collage artists and digital surrealists on Instagram. I see that surrealist artwork is freedom of imagination. Surrealists show who you really are. I started to study what is surreal artwork. There I found outstanding artists of the past such as Salvador Dali and René Magritte who until now are my inspirations.
By continuing to practice self-taught for months, I finally found my creative photography style. After changing my artwork four times my photography art style was accepted by the public. Some of my previous photo editing stints have not reflected my character and still tend to the bandwagon. So I change my daily routine. I often go out walking or cycling at 3 am just for inspiration. Sometimes inspiration comes from music and movies. (My favorites are Wes Anderson's films). Until now, I am still productive to do my creative photos. But, I also use my design skills for the benefit of others. I believe everything in the world is art. It depends on how you look at it.
