The Surreal Art of Domen Lo

Short films

Illusion (2015)

Illusion, my second animated film, revolves around the main character as he battles with his increasing dependency on alcohol to escape the dullness of everyday life, focusing on the internal battle as he transitions between fantasy and reality.

The artist

Domen Lo, young slovenian digital creator and artist, produces most of his artworks in only two dimensions. Putting aside some exceptions his computer screen represents his canvas and his tablet represents his brush. Not focusing on the used media Domen stays loyal to his expression ... the surrealistic motives often shock the viewer with their rawness and directness and emerge a wish to further explore the work and its message.

His style can most easily be defined as grotesque, hyperrealistic or surrealistic - his process consists of painting in a virtual space, allowing him to have complete control of the paint and the ability to mix different classic media that would otherwise not be able to coexist together.

The work plays with the idea of alternate reality, where connecting objects form a playful new visual symmetry, trying to connect to ideas of humans connecting to technology connecting to nature.

Domen is currently working on his PhD in Art & Design Theory.
