The Most Incredible Sci-Fi Vehicles Paintings Ever
“I don’t know what it is about them,” Khyzyl Saleem says of his fascination with cars, “but I think it’s the personal aspect of them: the ability to make it your own and make it something that reflects you as a person.”
One quick glance at Saleem’s website shows just how deep that fascination is: the page is covered in insane, futuristic vehicles that wouldn’t look out of place in some new blockbuster video game. His pieces often take modern vehicles and splice them with space age tech and vivid, colorful paint jobs. Sometimes he even skips the modern part and goes straight to making crazy spaceships. “I’m not sure if I’m fully sold on the whole flying cars thing yet, however,” he says.
The pieces are particularly impressive considering the Manchester-based artist only started using Photoshop four years ago, at 17 years old. When his dad brought home a copy of the software, Saleem dove in, determined to learn everything he could about it. Inspired by artists like Danny LuVisi and Arron Beck, he started making his own crazy landscapes and characters.
