Some artists seek inspiration from nature, personal memories, or the people around them. Felipe de Castro is unlike any of those artists because he likes to draw inspiration from ordinary objects, such as a face mask or a bar of chocolate! The 33-year-old Brazilian architect and urban planner based in Rio de Janeiro reimagines these everyday items and draws them as unique buildings.
While this concept may sound weird – after all, how can a piece of chocolate be transformed into a building? – you will be surprised at how wonderful his works are. Moreover, the artist never seems to be short of ideas. Check out 17 of his best works.
