Melbourne-based artist Sol renders sunny, yet self-deprecating digital illustrations.

His work ranges from skewed reality scenes to surreal works and outright abstracts. In a memorable piece, Sol collages cutouts of tongues on a striking, bright yellow background. Many of his works have human elements, but some completely dive into the world of fantasy. His website displays pastel sketches reminiscent of the semi-violent doodle by Kurt Cobain. His spontaneous compositional style and combination of real and digital elements is hugely engaging.

The artist frequently uses his own photographs and borrowed textures from the Internet to lend his illustrations a layer of depth and warmth. The digital artist is inspired by nonsensical phrasing from that moment in his day before he falls asleep. Stats for Primitive Human Prints Trending: Older & Warm
