Philadelphia-based artist Armando Veve, creates drawings of surreal scenes and constructions, though each element is rendered in realism. With obsessive attention to detail and a mind that can conjure up epic and surreal scenes, his art becomes a world within its self. His work isn’t just exotic, exquisite, and excellently crafted, but he injects an odd and weird sense of humor that draws viewers to further explore his artistic realm. The style recalls both pointillism and vintage illustrations in reference books.

“The way I compose some drawings is very similar to how a sculptor arranges physical objects. I love to think of the drawings as blueprints for physical things.” – Armando Veve.
