I found paintings in my on going search for artificial landscapes. I think we all have that place in our hearts for that architecture and nature fantasy mesh, even if its office buildings or in this case dramatic islands floating in the sky.

Love those pastel colour palettes. Pretty sure this is what human colonies will look like on Pluto when our sun expands into a red giant.
Great taste as always, Sir Jakub.

These would make great Yes album covers!

Meh. Not so much. He’s no Roy Dean.

Marc, you mean Roger Dean?
I’m sure this guy would be the first to tell you that he owes a great debt to Dean, but I think these are a really good extension of the style.
Dan McPharlin also does some really cool work with a similar feel… he did a few Prefuse 73 covers.
Anyway, I absolutely love these.

The first one reminds me of Habitat 67 in Montreal.

Reminds me of Dinotopia

Really like the ornate structure and pastel in these. Great find.

The first one reminds me of the game FEZ. Same color scheme and grid/based architecture.

I’m working on a catalogue for an exhibition that includes two of Tristan’s works. They’re large, insanely detailed watercolours and his influences include 19th century Romantic landscape painting, 1960s utopian architecture, and scientific infographics. Really beautiful stuff!
