Chances are that a lot of you might already be familiar with the stunning illustrations of Maahy, an 18 year old artist from the Maldives who has nearly 16,000 Likes on Facebook. Over the years, this brilliant upcoming artist has always taken my breath away with his works, drawn in his bold, signature style. Full of intricate details, his pieces have many hidden surprises that reveal themselves on closer inspection.
Maahy is a self-taught illustrator, a dreamer whose passion and joy for art manifests itself in his pieces. Growing up in the Maldives, a country blessed with sunny skies and crystal clear seas, caused him to be inspired by the beauty of nature.
My art portrays the minimalism of black and white as well as the chaotic beauty and mystery of doodling, zentangles, streams of flowing lines and the fascinating scent and touch of coffee. I work intimately with ink pens and graphite pencils. For me, The key to finishing a detailed art piece is immense patience and perseverance. I always carry a camera with me to capture organic and interesting patterns, shapes and designs I see every day. Whether it be on the road, in a mud puddle, the dancing clouds, or in a trailing foot print, I always keep my inspiration rolling.
Apart from undertaking commissions, the artist has also begun designing tattoos. You can buy select limited edition prints of his works at his online store.

In his paintings, monstrously huge monolithic /geometric-shaped structures seemingly hover in space, or have sprung up in the most desolate of landscapes. We are given no clue about how these objects appeared, or in what point in mankind’s history have they been placed. Some of the settings may seem distinctly North American — but is this on earth or an alternate dimension altogether?
The artist says:
I paint with the hope of inspiring thought and emotion in those who view my work, to reach some deeper inner-space within the mind, to touch on memories and feelings that might have been lost or forgotten, and ultimately, to bring myself closer to my fellow man through a visual dialogue with them. I want to inspire hope in others in order to show me where to look for it within myself.

Portuguese studio LIKEarchitects used 1,500 metal paint cans to build “Andy Warhol – Icons,” a temporary art museum inside the atrium of Lisbon’s Colombo Shopping Mall. The museum displayed 32 original art works by the iconic pop artist, over a three month period.
Inspired by Warhol’s usage of humble household objects in his paintings, the architects eschewed the typical white walls of galleries, and purposely used the empty cans to create a simple, but memorable structure to frame the works.[via Junkculture and Dezeen]

Locusta Migratoria, 100 x 70 cm
Paula Duta is a Romanian interior architect and self-confessed “happy person,” who says that she is really dedicated to her work. This young architect also has a keen interest in drawing, amongst many other things, bugs. She captures the likeness of the insects onto paper with the passion and commitment of an amateur entomologist. As you can see in these images, her illustrations are incredibly detailed and gorgeously textured.
Duta first began by drawing small sketches of these winged beauties, then progressed to small portraits. Her latest piece, Locusta Migratoria (seen above), is a larger work measuring 100 x 70 cm.

The most memorable superheroes are not just those with almost-supernatural powers or fantastic gadgets, but the ones with whom we empathize with the most. Comic book writers cleverly give these powerful beings wonderful origin stories, which not only lend them a touch of poignant vulnerability, but also justifiable reasons for their single-minded pursuit of justice.
