Fady Youssef is an Egyptian art director based in Dubai. He created this amazing series of character design made out of waste, literally. With old electronic parts he put together some quite inspiring compositions with character full of personality. It definitely reminds me of Wall-e by Pixar. With scores of new smartphones and computers release every quarter, tons of electronic devices are thrown away – and they often wind up filling our landfills and polluting the environment.
Alexander Isakov is an artist based in Berlin, Germany; he shared on Behance a beautiful parking space revamped by the hands of his craft.

The boldness of those black lines are making his style quite unique and especially at a larger scale.

A graphic artist based in Portland, ME, USA, we wanted to share his 2017 project he worked for Rémy Martin in Miami at The W South Beach during Art Basel on a basketball court.

I wanted to change the pace a little and share the incredible work by Deane McGahan, a sculptor based in Seattle, WA, USA. Her incentive foundation is coming right from that region where natural beauty lies everywhere. The simple color strikes me clear beauty and almost feel like the piece of Fortress of Solitude. It's impressive and wonders what would be the process behind. Hope you will enjoy them as well.

Prepare to be amazed by masterpiece drawings by Gurekbal Bhachu who is a self-taught artist based in London, UK. His muse? He takes as inspiration celebrities and characters like Eminem, Drake, Morgan Freeman and even Thanos from the Avengers: Infinity War movie. His level of details is what is the most awe-inspiring ones we have ever seen on ABDZ. Take Thanos for example, you can clearly see the levels of details from the color, texture, and highlights. A huge prop to Gurekbal for his incredible work.
I always like to feature things that inspire me, most of the time it's about a piece of graphic design, a website. Lately, it has been about books, especially biographies and books about investment (I need to retire one day ?) as well as photography and of course UI and UX, which is my day to day job. I know it might sound cheesy but inspiration is everywhere and with the globalized world that is even more clear. However, I got truly inspired by a cause that has filled my heart with happiness and brought tears to my eyes, but not of sadness, but enlightenment.

The art world tends to be the most popular place this marvel shows up.

We are huge fans of Kyle Steed and have been following his career since the early days of the blog. We've always admired his work, even though according to him, he's still figuring it out. His work goes from simple frames to huge painted murals. In addition, he's managed to gather a huge following on Instagram and for great reason. The motive of this post, however, is to shine a light on his most recent project and biggest mural design he's ever endeavored to create.
I've always been fascinated about the amount of time spent on an illustration or a painting, maybe it's because I am not patient enough.
