Kiko Capile’s Unsettling Figurative Drawings

by Andy SmithPosted on


Philippines native Kiko Capile draws surreal, writhing distortions on the human form. The artist’s stirring scenes move between elegant and horror-driven mutations. The artist often shares process photos of these drawings on his Instagram account.

“After many years of inactivity focusing on his career as a graphic designer, only in 2015 did he decide to pursue his passion for visual arts, this time focusing on drawing,” a statement says. “His style showcases highly detailed texture and intricate elements which he often amalgamates with human figures and faces. Re-occuring themes in his works are decay, death, life, immortality, melancholia and monstrosities.”
