Kareem Iliya - Illustrator
Quote:
"Iliya's work is usually described as being 'ethereal' and 'mystical'. He works with watercolor and ink on paper, often in vibrant colors through which figures and objects seem to burst and radiate."

wow I've never seen watercolour and ink like this.
I feel some of the work is so perfect it must be digital (like some of the ones in the first posts)...

i've seen his work around and while it's definitely very aesthetic, personally i find it a bit soul-less as well, like a flatter version of gustafson...

thanks for the thread, avant garde!
