Cambodian artist Visoth Kakvei masterfully brings together symbolism and style, and no sketchbook has enough pages for his creativity. The 27-year-old graphic designer usually draws his works freehand and the pieces take 3-6 hours to finish, but sometimes Kakvei feels it’s not enough.
He depicts abstract patterns, and imagery ranging from the Statue of Liberty to exotic animals like elephants, sea horses, and stags. He periodically posts zoomed in footage of the delicate line-drawing process, which can be just as mesmerizing as the drawings themselves.
Whether in color or black-and-white, his maze-like textures never cease to stir the imagination. His mostly nature-inspired designs have already earned Visoth Kakvei a staggering 800k following on Instagram and his fan army only keeps on growing.
