Photo manipulation allows us to do everything we want and imagine, I think that's why I love that so much because there's no limit. Artists across the world have been pushing the limits, guys like Erik Johansson and many others. For this post we show a simple but yet inspiring artwork created by Kareem Hossam, a visual artist from Cairo, Egypt. For more information about Kareem check out his portfolio at https://www.behance.net/kimz Credits Idea: Hany Ibrahem Photographer: Ahmed Farouk Retoucher: Kareem Hossam
In collectives you can see the power of shared skills, where artworks are made in group and common thought is to make awesome pieces. Sense, a collective based in London comes up with some remarkable works, like these below. We are Sense, an aspiring collective filled with talented artists. We've been able to work with truly interesting people, and I think our collective experience shows in our work. When it comes to design, We judge success by the number of people positively touched by Our work. Craftsmanship plays a big role, of course, but in the end We believe design should make people happy or, at the very least, not to upset them. We will Allow our work to tell you the rest about us. These are only a few pieces of their whole work. For more of it, you should really pay them a visit by going to their Behance portfolio, where you'll get to see some truly great pieces, done by these talented set of people. Cheers! ;) Chapter One - Noir La Maîtresse by Kris Shields Three Devils by Andre Filipe Chapter Two - Lucid Rise by Kris Shields & Craig Shields Solar Deity by Alexander Fedosov Engulfed by Julian Weise Burning Embers by Lewis Moorhead MORIENDO short animation Vacuity
The Depthcore Collective one of our favorite ones out there has just released their new chapter, the 41st themed chapter exhibition called "MIRROR". As you can expect there are amazing works from masters such as Justin Maller, Sara Blake, Mike Harrison, Jeff Huang, João Oliveira and many others. This chapter features over seventy carefully considered and meticulously executed pieces produced by a diverse selection of members from the collective. The submissions, as varied in content as they are in style, revolve around central themes of introspection, self reflection and contemplation of man and his environment, and are spread across several mediums, including music, photography, illustration and digital painting.

David Fuhrer is a self taught freelance artist born in 1985 in Bern, Switzerland. The 90's has a clear influence on this work especially because we grew up in that decade and started experiment with computer creating visual art. With focus on Illustration his work is full of details with some sort of surrealism influence sometimes as we can se see in the Red Apple piece. David is also member of the DEPTHCORE.

Evgeny Kiselev is a freelancer illustrator and graphic designer from Saint Petersburg, Russia, his works were published in magazines such as Computer arts (U.K.), IDN (Hong Kong), ROJO (Spain), Grafik magazine (U.K.), Beautiful Decay (U.S.A.), E-tapes (France), Chewonthis magazine (U.S.A.), I.O. Magazine (Germany), X-Funs (Taiwan), New web pick, Artzmania e-zine, Sherbert magazine (U.S.A.), X-CUP (Taiwan), Semi Permanent books 05-07 etc. For more works and information we highly recommend that you check out Evgeny's website. "The diverse work of Evgeny Kiselev oscillates between the rigors of symmetry and prolific excess. Several compositions begin with vivid tiled patterns that are mirrored again and again until they can no longer be contained and are forced to push beyond the confines of their logic. Others, emerge from a single outline that manifests the controlled lawlessness of the work. Each piece achieves a complexity of color and layer that continues to build infinitely into the space of the page creating a warping spatial depth".
