Giving Masks A Brand New Avatar

We can all agree to the fact that masks have become an outdoor essential, and of course, a fashion statement, all around the globe. It’s a universal trend that does not seem to have an expiry date in our lives, at least for now.

Anyway, speaking of masks, Muhammed Sajid, an illustrator from Bangalore, who is from Kerala, had a different take on masks. Much to our liking towards futuristic adventures, Sajid created an illustrative series of culturally-infused creatives, rooted in sci-fi and Kerala origins. It has more to do with reimagining masks in a way that represents the future urban dystopia. There’s a lot of character to it, and it very much like Sajid’s work. He created a five-picture series, and we’re pretty sure you’d totally fall in love with it. Have a look!
