Hello, I'm Tealux_Art a local Southern California-based artist, who graduated from Laguna College of Art and Design with honors in May of 2021. I majored in Game Art Design with a focus on Character Design. My journey at LCAD allowed me to discover new art fields developing my skills in various mediums ranging from 2D digital illustrations to 3D modeling. In my exploration to find a creative focus, I came across great influencers such as Alphonse Mucha, Patrick Niguel, Hayao Miyazaki, Jimyo, Varga, and several others. My art ranges from various mediums such as traditional oil painting to digital design.
The Overall Aesthetic of my work is driven by the combining styles of modern Anime art with the traditional foundation of classical art. Inspired by the whimsical joy of Hayao Miyazaki‘s Ghibli films the addition of Varga’s pin-up illustrations, incorporates the intricate details of Alphonse Mucha’s ornate art nouveau compositions. You can also find Mother Earths' floral environment that combines with human engagement. My signature style is rendering portraits of semi-realism characters that provoke energy radiating in confidence with slight human compassion, whether sorrow or joy, bringing life to the piece. Each character has a relatable openness for the viewer to interpret and relate to each one in their own way. One can expand on the combination of fantasy and realism giving way to one’s own story.
