The Desktop Wallpaper Project featuring Artur Neufeld

Artur Neufeld

One of the things I’m really trying to push lately is to get art from younger, less established artists, who still totally make some great work. That’s the case with Mr. Artur Neufeld up there, a 17 year old artist from Germany who I came across through the Behance Network. One day Artur decided he wanted to learn how to use Photoshop and 3D Studio Max, and now he’s cranking out awesome pieces like the one above.

I had seen another piece that Artur did using 3D Max to create beautiful fonts in these rather calm, urban environments, so I was hoping he could do something similar to that. Instead, he did this amazing chase scene with the words Kitsune Noir being the unfortunate victim of a hit and run. I love all the bits and shards flying everywhere in this photo, you can stare at it forever. This is also the first time a photo has been used in the DWP, not counting Dash Shaw’s cat, haha…

I hope you guys enjoy this weeks design and check back next week for another awesome desktop.
