Nick Sullo (XSULLO) crafts techno-dystopic works that move between analog and digital approaches. Touches of surrealism and a distinct color palette blend with Sullo’s tight line-work, reminiscent of Moebius, techno-punk anime, or artists within the Heavy Metal roster. The artist often works abstractions into the pieces that resemble both digital glitches and painterly touches.
We recently asked XSULLO some questions about their inspirations:
Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: "Current events, personal struggles."
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: "Doing art is addictive. And a form of expression when words fall short."
Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?
A: "I find identity within myself, but I have been inspired by artist such as Alex Grey, James Jean, and David Choe."
Q: What role does an artist have in society?
A: "A cultural one, it is a visual time stamp of what is happening in the world either on a personal level or a social one."
Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?
A: "Change and growth, and melding the creative with the technological."
