Libya-based creative Mahmoud Jouini uses digital software to render colorful, three-dimensional abstract paintings that look like miniature worlds. Although the images look like snapshots of elaborate, sprawling dioramas that were physically constructed, each piece was actually created entirely on a computer with the help of programs like 3DS MAX2014 and Photoshop CC.
Minuscule, column-like shapes form the basis of each rendering. Varying drastically in height, individual pillars are clustered together to build flowing terrain saturated with vibrant hues like hot pink, aqua, and poppy red. Some structures appear like tiny islands or alien landscapes, while others evoke images of a hyper-metropolitan city with soaring skyscrapers.
