Where form meets function

Skilled in typography design, illustration and graphic design, Pakistani artist, Omar Aquil displays his latest work — MIMIC — a series of new visual experiments using art from the past.

Randomly choosing six paintings of Pablo Picasso’s work, (notably one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century), Aquil has recreated the iconic masterpieces into modern 3D geometric forms. The paintings’ traditional 2D perspective is essentially translated into shapes to create new physical qualities of the art, while also expressing a new interpretation of Picasso’s artwork.

Since studying Picasso during the start of his career, Aquil ackowledges that Picasso’s abstract visual language has always been an inspiration and found new forms interacting with each other.
