Recently showcased at Espai Tactel of Valencía, this series of mixed media by artist David Gómez Maestre combines photography, illustration and an exotic sense of mysticism to create artistic renderings of real people in tribal masks.

The Alicante-based artist uses photography of real people and pop culture icons, from designer Karl Lagerfeld to celebrity Amy Winehouse to gay porn star François Sagat, to create his own contemporary tribe of people; there is even an image of a wild safari cat adoring a mask.

Bold uses of color and a considerable understanding of geometrics make this striking felt pen series of pop art images from the young artist one that has to be seen by all. With tribal prints making a huge statement in designer collections this year, these artworks are even more fashionable and timely than ever. Find some inspiration when applying that face paint to match your new couture clothing with these images from David Gómez Maestre.
