Artist: Mehboob Dewji
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia
Themes: Digital patterns inspired
by the Alhambra
Medium: Electronic using Photoshop
The patterns were created using Photoshop. I started with just one straight line, gave it a texture and color and used filters to create geometric patterns. Again using different colors and texture, I added layers of different geometric shapes to create a “tile” that I used to make a seamless pattern. These patterns were then used to create backgrounds and spheres using several different shapes and colors.

When made black and white, then rebalanced in order to make either smoother gradients or more contrasting edges, your work would make GREAT displacement and bump maps for solid objects that serve as light sources. And good on’ya for making them from scratch in Photoshop!
I love the artwork. It is very interesting.
