Token Editions warmly welcomes 3D CGI illustrator Omar Aqil and a first selection of artworks from his series titled “Self-Portraits 2050”. Originally inspired by the art of Picasso, Omar modernizes the rules of cubism as he creates and combines 3D shapes and objects, then brings them to life with robotic-like animation.
For these portraits I experiment and play with 3D digital shapes and forms to create portrait compositions; they are inspired by Picasso's Cubist movement…!
Omar Aqil is a 3D CGI illustrator and art director based in Lahore, Pakistan.
