This man, when he wants to buy a sketchbook, has a big problem finding one big enough for his creativity. How big can this man’s creativity be? To get a measure of his imaginative power, you only have to scroll down a bit.
Who is this man? He’s a Cambodian artist, his name is Visoth Kakvei and, as you can see, he is able to bring together symbolism and style, art and technology, beauty and madness with his optical illusion drawings.
The 27-year-old graphic designer draws his works freehand and his pieces usually take about 3-6 hours to finish. But sometimes, not even 6 hours of work is enough for a true artist. So, to make these incredibly intricate maze-like illustrations even more breathtaking, he digitally enhances them and thus create the illusions of doodles popping out from the pages.
He has already a staggering 800k following him on Instagram and his army of fans keeps growing. It is for sound reasons, we say. When you’ve got a hole in a sketchbook decorated with what appears to be millions of flowers and leaves and textures, you cannot help, but wonder, who is this man? Is he a man or some sort of God?
Tell us which are your favourites? We loved the crystal gems popping out of the paper and also, the leaves flying out of the sketchbook, as if the artist has given them eternal life and freedom to take their flight.
Also, check out the herbs growing out of the sketchbook and embracing the artist’s creative hand! Its symbolism is obvious: the means of imagination and the product of imagination meet into a beautifully artistical embrace.
But our favourite, favourite, is the man standing on the edge of a cliff with above him and…the most daring of all, with the planets revolving around him. The message? We’d like to think is about the man being in the centre of everything alive.
