From the New World will impress people even if they never knew about its astounding dimensions. It is a digital art collage that is full of stunning details that depict a dystopian future. Yet once people learn that it measures nearly 26 feet wide (800cm) and 13 feet tall, their breaths will be taken away. It puts into perspective just how much detail is put into this work of art.

Created by Chinese artist Yang Yongliang, who is known for his Cigarette Ash Landscapes and other equally surreal imagery, From the New World is "overrun with construction, debris, and high-rise skyscrapers," This is Colossal notes. It is a commentary on potentially devastating affects of unchecked development and industrialization.
