Dramatic Digital Landscapes by Yuri Shwedoff

Moscow-based artist Yuri Shwedoff composes dramatic digital landscapes with dark and dystopian themes, often illustrating science-fiction like fantasies that merge technology and biology. The illustrations are defined by outdoor environments, portraits, and urban and suburban settings that are familiar yet strangely surreal. Distorted mountains bearing cavernous, mechanical voids work alongside an image of a boy surrounded by angry wolves and an adventurer who meets a dinosaur in a desolate space. Each of the images are characterized by an ominous quality given shape through the use of dark colors, deep shadows and expressionless faces.
