Self-taught artist Iyan De Jesus, softens the metallic edge of steampunk with pliant alabaster skin. Each painting is a pastel-hued post-apocalyptic technofantasy suffused in color.
Holding court against a background of mechanical complications are nymph-like cyborgs—more human than robot—whose dignified expressions hide stories rooted in mythology, literature, snatches of song, and fleeting moments between lucidity and sleep. To help viewers divine a work’s narrative, De Jesus camouflages elements among a multitude of gears: owls, hearts, snowflakes, gas lamps, and totem poles all serve as subtle bearers of meaning.

The attention to minutiae, obsession with geometric compositions and patterns, cleanliness of lines, and smoothness of surface hark back to De Jesus’s background in architecture and computer-aided design. Unlike formally trained artists who went from canvas to screen, De Jesus started “painting” with a mouse before she shifted to brushes and glazes. The jump from digital to traditional was a rebellion against the ephemeral nature of bits and bytes, as well as a surrender to the soul’s desire to create something lasting.

Each painting demands more than a cursory glance. Those who linger and look will be rewarded by the unexpected lyricism disguised by steampunk’s retro-futuristic tendencies. In between pulleys and wheels lie images that summon the sound of the sea, the slow and steady beat of the human heart.

Hi Iyande de jesu

Oops I just readen you don't want to be stolen, yups... ( Ad Amorem, inspired by Iyande Jesus by A7rarSJ ) :)

I m a French Jesuit Scolastic and I like to draw (when I have time :D ). Sometime I look Deviantart to be amazed by the potential of young artist and/or pick up some artwork for inspire me.

I just strongly be inspired by “Lite” for my drawing about Ad Amorem prayer… This artwork, “Lite”, is from you, and I was so surprised, because I download a lot of picture from this site, to notice, after finishing, that your nickname was connected to my vocation. So I wanted to show to you my drawing as a meditation about your drawing “Lite” and pay tribute to your art.

Note: In “my Lite version”, called “Ad Amorem” I just replaced the girl by God who take care about Adam (inspired by one sculpture from Chartre Cathedral). You can (with difficulty) discern a yellow cross caring by the “Adam”. In fact the Adam is also Jesus caring the cross supported by the tenderling from the Father. In fact this is also a synthesis about the meaning of the life and our own way. But I don’t want to explain all my “drawing” here. Would be boring ;D And of course, I didn’t yet finish my drawing (and it is much more beautiful in real life!).. if I do it, I will show you if you want.

I strongly wanted to pay tribute to you, thank you for the design of the wave. I really like the sensation of peace and calm joy which emanates from your drawing!

Well fraternally,

Ps: sorry all for my English,
