About the Artist: Ricky Xie
Who are your biggest sources of inspiration?
I would say it's mostly people like Hayao Miyazaki, Eyvind Earle, Syd Mead, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Gunpei Yokoi, just to name a few. I tend to gravitate more towards the visionaries, pioneers, and inventors. I find it inspiring and hope to follow in their footsteps. I think one of the biggest things that sets artists apart is their originality in Intellectual Property (IP).
What excites you about being an artist?
Just seeing awesome art online is enough to excite me, really. Anything from 2D art, 3D art, concept design, animation, architecture, product design, interior design, car design, the list goes on and on. Art is just a very broad field, and it's constantly evolving with new tools and software. I've always loved the idea of brainstorming, world-building, and storytelling in general. Seeing the art of Avatar/Star Wars/Blade Runner/Lord of the Rings, as well as certain video games, was really what got me into concept art to begin with. Studio Ghibli films are also one of my biggest inspirations that helped piqued my interest in art. Also the fact that there's so many different career possibilities is what excites me. You could work remotely on your laptop, or at the studio. You could teach, invent, conceptualize, art direct, & design.
Is there a specific point of view that you have about art?
I do believe that there is a bit of a science to art, as well as certain mathematical formulas in art that appeal to our eyes and senses more than others. I love trying to find the objective in the subjective, and vice versa. Composition in art is subjective, but yet some compositions are considered much more appealing and popular than others, thanks to the "rule of thirds" and the "golden ratio." Some colors inherently seem to match much better than other colors too. I believe it's no accident that red pairs well with green, while blue pairs well with yellow and gold. The idea that symmetrical images give us different feelings than asymmetrical images is quite fascinating. Perhaps our minds are biologically wired to like certain shapes, colors, and arrangements more than others? This whole mystery and intersection of subject matters is what really intrigues me.
I also think the modern day definition of "art" should be changed. If everything can be considered art, then nothing is art.
I do believe that with the future of AI and automation, there might be less tedious and labor-intensive jobs, and more creative jobs for people. And I think that excites me the most. Living in a world where everyone can see themselves as artists.
