Pablo Picasso's eccentric and surreal paintings have inspired countless modern artists, including Pakistani illustrator Omar Aqil, who imagined how some of the Spanish icon's most recognizable pieces would look like 3D artworks.
"I have been studying his amazing artworks since I have started my career, his abstract visual language always inspired me..." Aqil wrote on Behance about the 3D rendering project, titled MIMIC. "In this visual mimicry, I have shown how the skill responds when it come across the complexity of someone’s thought, and how the meanings of the shapes and forms have been changed and create new physical qualities."
The 3D paintings are striking, especially considering they were digitally rendered - the classic paintings look as if they were physically constructed thanks to Aqil's extreme attention to textures and shadows. His digital art is both a fitting tribute to Picasso and an innovative advent in its own right.
