"Prospective Cities" calligraphy, architecture and illustration in a painting ...
Etnik drew all his life, but he really invested himself in street-art 20 years ago. Since then he has developed a geometric particular style with real depth and perspective.
"Prospective Cities" is a project Etnik began in 2003. An architectural illustration work with perspective and a rich color range. The colorful cities he builts with a brush in two and three dimensions, seem to float and come out of the paintings and walls where they are painted.
However, as a street-artist he adds his own recognizable styled letters to these paintings to express his own views and represent the precarious stability of human beings.
The result is a huge fantastic illustration!
