Zaid Zawaidah is an artist from Dubai who creates graphics inspired by Picasso and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac on the photos of the influencers.

Inspired by Picasso and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, Dubai-based artist Zaid Zawaidah has chosen to use simple brushstrokes using only primary colors to completely change the photographs of Instagram’s influencers.

Probably also taken by the boredom of having to “suffer” always the same type of images, Zaid creates works of art and surprises all those who look at them. The artist prefers a mixed media approach, which reminds us very much of the illustrations of Koketit, an Israeli artist who creates fashion works on every surface, of which we have previously spoken here.

Unlike Koketit, which mainly uses neutral shades, Zaid prefers bright, sometimes almost fluorescent tones. These shades of colour help to recreate a somewhat tribal mood.
