Visions of the future through the eyes of the past envelop these images by Raymond Lemstra. These illustrations of robots are reminiscent of the A.I. concepts from the 50s and 60s, simultaneously futuristic and antiquated.

The bulk of Lemstra's work involves the combination of soft, acrylic colors with the rigid contours of his geometric figures. The artist's portfolio centers around fantasy or science fiction-inspired characters, composed of diverse shapes and forms.

Looking at the series of robot-like faces, one is reminded of the popular animated Transformer series of the 90s. Interesting how geometrical shapes can be transformed into a captivating face by simply carefully rearranging the pieces to create something entirely different and authentic.
