The Art Of Nicolas Rix

Nicolas Rix captivated me with his awesome Legend Of Zelda tribute, and then I had a hard time not scouring every inch of his art world. Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, he's worn many art hats, switching between illustration, comic book art, animating, art directing, game designing and more. He's done a little bit of everything and continues to bounce back and forth between different art related fields, following his intent of always learning new things and always challenging himself, a good path for any artist.

His art style could best be described as colorful, graphic and stylized, relying on silhouettes and broad splashes of color to sell his pieces, which truly showcase a strong personal style developed from many influences, including a self proclaimed love of the work that the Les Gobelins animators put out on a yearly basis (Check out our extensive archive of Gobelins shorts). Check out more of his awesome work after the break!
