Naturel was born in 1983 in Landover, Maryland. His sharp futuristic work has quickly emerged in today’s postmodern scene. His sharp, triangular illustrations are a futuristic blend of pop and cubism, with a surrealist twist. Considered an influencer himself with a massive social media following, his talents have also attracted the eyes and ears of celebrity clients such as Swizz Beatz, Rihanna, Spike Lee, Paul Rosenberg and LeBron James, among many others. Working directly with Jay-Z on iconic apparel designs, he has also served as Creative Director for global campaigns ranging from brands like Crooks & Castles to Levi’s, as well as working with multi-national brands like Courvoisier and the NFL.

Interesni Kazki – Ukraine

Ukrainian duo Interesni Kazki will be joining the RMP ranks with their impressive and fantastical work. The folks at juxtapoz have more details:

When translated to English their name means Interesting Fairytale. Renowned for imaginative imagery ̶ inspired by science, religion, mythology, folklore and history ̶ each piece is created in an attempt to look beyond the bounds of what is visible and present a new perception of the world.
