Fenton, Michigan-based digital illustrator IRSKIY creates abstract illustrations and abstract art inspired by minimal architecture.
IRSKIY’s abstract illustrations combine bright neon color combinations, lines, shapes, and patterns. It straight leaps to the eye, that his artworks combine different styles of minimalism, pop art and also collage. It is clear to us that the 1980s (especially the architecture and music) are a major inspiration for his artworks.
We asked IRSKIY to get a little insight into his workflow:
»I get really excited when I see clean, minimalistic buildings. My work process is pretty simple. When I look at a building, I deconstruct it visually in my mind, then re-arrange it in an abstract way, and finally add colors to it. It’s like a ‚colorized blueprint‘. I’m known for my bold and bright colors, that is due to the 80s music genre I listen to.«
All these aspects can be found immediately when you look at the various artworks. By combining the flashy colors with separated patterns, IRSKIY sets us back into the 1980s.
The goal is to keep a consistent visual diary of all the buildings he interprets in his mind whilst finding new ways to approach his work. He is definitely an artist to watch for the future. For more of his work make sure to check out his website and his Instagram.
