Awesome Retro Travel Posters That’ll Make You Day-Dream About Your Next Holiday

Graphic designer Alex Asfour has created a set of travel posters that have a cool vintage style to them and make us even more eager for sunnier shores. Asfour has used a simple approach with these posters, and evoked a vintage vibe with bold colors, typography and a grainy texture. Given the sorry state of our weather at the moment, you’d be forgiven for craving a holiday so bad you’re finding it hard to concentrate on anything else. Well for now you can enjoy these artistic graphics.

Blurry Summer Oil on Canvas Paintings of the City by Philip Barlow

A cool and soothing vibe I got this morning after stumbling upon these sweet photo-realistic Oil Paintings. The City at a bright moment during a sunny warm day with the blur of people and cars moving through the streets. By Philip Barlow, a South African painter from Cape Town, who believes in exploring illuminated moments within our seemingly ordinary lives. Barlow captures the soft focus effect perfectly in these paintings adding to it the glare of light that fascinating to the artist, and its effect on different surfaces, especially the abstraction of forms often generated by both natural and artificial lighting.
