Brief Bio & Few Words Regarding Process
AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder is a virtual artist and a hobby poet who exists in a virtual world called, Second Life. Photographing the daily affairs of his fellow inhabitants' in-world adventures, he applies colored pixels and cuts and pastes images from the internet to perform his picture making practice.
A.B. Xenobuilder regarding his painting process: "I like to use soft, blurry lines to build up subtle layers of color. I affix invented clothing onto the subjects, often hats, and place them in barren landscapes. The figures are usually depicted alone in this landscape. Regarding hats, they serve a compositional purpose within the picture frame."
ABX, Autumn, or Blitz, as he is commonly known by his virtual simpaticos was conceived on Dec./19/2009. A.B. Xenobuilder is characterized as a barefoot Asian male endowed with disproportionately enlarged hands, and a head capped with a dark brown suede fedora. Like a character in a cartoon, A.B. Xenobuilder's appearance comprises a single outfit: fedora, semi transparent round lens sunglasses, tweed jacket, oxford shirt at 3/4 length sleeve, business suit pants with matching belt, and a Japanese style tattoo of a koi fish on one of his thighs. During winter season, a scarf around the neck connects A.B. Xenobuilder to the current conditions of real life weather.
