aeforia is an artist from Montreal, Canada. His work is all about colors, balance, and emotion. Blending surreal landscapes and digital portraiture, he has managed to craft a distinct style over the years and develop a keen eye for details, while focusing on the emotional impact. His work encompasses many types of artistic self-expression, such as photography, musical composition, with a heavy focus on 3D art and animation.

An expressive yet sophisticated use of texture, color, and composition can be recognized in his visual explorations.
