Brooklyn-based graphic designer Ramzy Masri is trying to make the world brighter one rainbow building at a time. In his #spectrumedit project, Masri transforms both interiors and exteriors into vibrant, colorful spaces.
"New York can be a rude, lonely place and I hope my images give folks a different perspective on that. I love taking the grand architecture of my city and reimagining what it might look like if it was brightly painted," Masri told The Creator's Project. "Generally I look for repetitive elements like columns, windows, or stairs. These details take well to 'rainbowifying' since a clear sequence of colors can be photo-imposed."
Masri doesn't actually take any of the photos himself, but rather appropriates images from photographers on his Instagram. He then recolors the images to create an entirely new perspective for the viewer and posts them to his Instagram. So far, he's transformed scenes in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Austin, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Bilbao, and Lisbon.
We think it'd be pretty cool to live in a world with buildings this vibrant and bright. Check out some of Masri's work below:
