Omar Aqil, the Pakistan based designer is back with another stunning series of Pablo Picasso paintings that he turned into 3D art masterpieces. This is a sequence of his previous work “Mimic I” series, which was completed earlier this year, but now focused on portraits of the famous Spanish Artist.
Using cinema 4D-ray, photoshop, and illustrator, the Pakistan-based creative re-imagined six of Picasso’s figurative works as a contemporary 3D art gallery. The designer has always been engaged in Pablo Picasso’s works and, more precisely, the artist’s talent to create his own abstract, visual language.
” In mimic II I have explored more diversity of forms and shapes in the work (portraits) of Pablo Picasso,” Aqil describes. “With the second series I picked six portraits (faces) paintings from Pablo Picasso’s artwork, I have also created experimented backgrounds using medieval architectural elements in modern flair. It’s just an attempt to give a different look of his compositions. I have also added some different elements to give them a new story.”
“The abstraction of these figures are open up new complexity within the objects he used. this is a small effort to give him a humble tribute for his revolutionary efforts in the modern art.”
It is always a challenge to reinterpret Picasso’s work in a new art style. “I have been studying his artworks since I started my career — his abstract visual language always inspired me and I found new forms interacting with each other.”
