Aspiring artist who comes from the Outer Universe, Bryan Maciel, AKA "Elisyan" sees the illustrating process as a therapy and a means of self-discovery. His strongly conceptual, signature style relies upon a whimsical, fantasy-driven world of characters and their exploits. Elisyan is fascinated by the cyberpunk, artificial organic and mechanical patterns which in his work address a balance of the beauty of nature and the perfection of technology. He is deeply interested by the world of manga created by Yoji Shinkaw, Tsutomu Nihei and Katsuya Terada. The sci-fi culture, dystopian and utopian fictions such as Ghost in the Shell, Akira, BLAME! and Ergo proxy, also futuristic novels and films are the primary influences in Elisyanâ€™s work.
The sustainable futuristic development revolves around the economies that arise, alluding to an autonomous maintenance cycle. This can mark a point of precariousness or the continuous sustenance of a certain population. The hologram is a before and after or perhaps an uncertain or alternative path that digital more human economies can provide. The future is coming!
