Khyzyl Saleem is an illustrator and concept artist based in Manchester and his work is absolutely mind blowing. One quick glance at Saleem’s website shows just how good he 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, colourful paint jobs.

From Twin Peaks to Apocalypse Now, from E.T. to The Big Lebowski via Jason and the Argonauts, Holorama gives these famous scenes a third dimension using a simple holographic process based on a semi-transparent screen, mixing the image of an extremely faithfully built model with the characters extracted from the original scene.
