Illustrator Merges Fashion Sketches and Real Life in Series of Photographs

Now this is an idea worth exploring. Artist & fashion illustrator Shamekh Bluwi has been cutting out holes in some of his work to allow the scene behind to ‘paint’ the sketches. He’s been sharing the creative idea through a series of photographs on his Instagram account.

We’ve seen similar work before, most notably FILMography the New York Movie Scenes blog by Christopher Maloney. However instead of lining up old movie scenes with the surrounding architecture, or indeed merging the past and present using old photographs, Shamekh envelopes the scene to evoke real world scenes on his sketches.

Using this creative juxtaposition is sure to stir the creative juices in photographers an artists alike. Have a look through some more of Shamekh’s lovely creations below for inspiration:
