Meet the Fashion Illustrator Who Took The Fashion World By Storm: Shamekh Al Bluwi
A couple of days ago, we’ve noticed something that made us happy. As days go by, a flow of new artists started to pop up out of nowhere, making their way to the top slightly fast. We find our job very fulfilling because we are honored to help them gain even more recognition by presenting their work.
After Stephen Mcmennamy, today is the turn of Shamekh Al Bluwi, an architect, a visual artist and a fashion illustrator,based in Jordan, half Saudi and half Jordanian.
This artist can fill a sketchbook with his artistic strokes and have a masterpiece in each of its pages. He’s highly motivated by art in all its forms: illustrations, paintings, film, music,etc. Studying Architecture, in college, helped him get exposed to both arts and many technical aspects such as aesthetics of the human body measurements.
By observing his work, you can see that his style of illustration is described by contradictions and textures. This unique combination got him to create for Roberto Cavalli, Mary Katrantzou, Stefano Gabbana, Gigi Hadid, Valentino, Nicole Richie, Ashi Studio and Alessandra Ambrosio.
In his pictures below, art, architecture and fashion collide in the best possible way. Shamekh has found an ingenious way to combine both of his passions. If you find his work original enough, you can check out more if his projects on Facebook or Instagram.
