Somewhat reminiscent of the visual effects displayed in 2011's Someone That I Used To Know by Gotye featuring Kimbra, Esther Ruiz creates esthetically engaging sculptures out of concrete blocks and geometric shapes. With an emphasis on geometric shapes, the Brooklyn-based artist sculpts pieces that hipsters, smartphone photography filter app users and most importantly people in general will love.

Talking to Design Milk, Esther Ruiz explains how her sculptures are inspired by other planets and what their horizons and landscapes might look like. Meanwhile the concrete portion is drawn from her daily life on this planet in her native New York City. Her out of this world artwork often incorporates a range of rainbow hues as well.
