Instagram serves as our favorite source of artistic expression and inspiration. From colorful geometric art to watercolor tattoos and even home decor, we love what we’re seeing on the app from creative people every day. Case in point: A totally amaze artist is recreating the whole world in technicolor. That’s right — NYC-based Ramzy Masri is putting in some serious time to change the way we see the world by showing us what it looks like through a vivid, multicolored lens.
Ramzy is a graphic designer by trade and calls himself a “teen girl at heart, rainbow witch and NYC queer” on his Instagram profile. He believes in a brighter world through design. “[I’m] an unapologetic optimist. I value authentic experiences that help people to live fuller, richer lives. I’m a media-agnostic designer interested in what makes things tick and when and if we’ll make contact with aliens and glitter,” Ramzy says on his website.
Whether his subject is a giraffe, a smokestack or a subway train — Masri makes it rain… bow. He also “reimagines work from some of [his] favorite Instagrammers” in a series he hashtags #spectrumedit. Check out some of his coolest recent posts below.
Ramzy is also an on-air designer at Nickelodeon. Makes a lot of sense, right? If this color grid wall existed IRL, we’d be ‘gramming there weekly.
The color washes he adds transform places and create new perspectives. It has us appreciating the details in the architecture and design of these buildings, and we’d never guess the second pic was taken in New Mexico.
We’ll heart Lisa Frank forever, and judging by these vibrant photos, we bet Ramzy will too.
With just over 22,000 Instagram followers, Ramzy is unapologetically putting a rainbow wash on the world, and we can’t get enough.
