About the Artist
Cyril is 30 and currently working in Southern France as a clinical psychologist, but spends his free time producing surreal and fantasy digital art. Cyril characterizes his work as “otherworldly,” as his own intuition/philosophical perspectives of human life influence each piece. Many of his works feature lost children in search of “their truth” or animals who critique or play a human role. A great source of inspiration comes from artists such as Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki, whom Cyril says “are both the roots of my own world.”
