Warsheh randomly selected classical paintings, pulled the characters out of their context completely, into an abstract & modern setting. I absolutely love the results. Magical, mysterious, and although most of their original contents are gone, they’ve managed to perceive their beauty. Or better said: they’ve created a new, transformed kind of beauty that I strongly admire.
Warsheh is a collaboration between Mothanna Hussein and Hadi Alaeddin; two designers who are based in Amman, Jordan. Here’s what they have to say about this series:
This is Not Art.
It’s not deeply meaningful or vaguely philosophical.
It’s not calculated or exact.
It is only a series of posters designed from classic paintings.
A simple reinterpretation of how we saw them.
Our tribute to art and design.

Digital Artist Christian Schloe was featured on the blog a while ago. As I saw some wonderful new works pass by on his Facebook, I figured it would be nice to share some new beauties on the blog today. Enjoy!
