The Karim Fakhoury Feel the Power art series features powerful and potent apocalyptic images of a boy ascending and ready to die.

Fakhoury's fateful, violent and somehow serene art style is gripping. Using photo manipulation and some basic matte paintings, Fakhoury, an artist for ArsDigitalia, creates the scene in pale colors and emphasizes light selectively to bring out a mesmerizing realism. Combining a simple background of a gloomy sky with clouds photographed from a bottom-up angle and a boy in a striking, ready-to-die apocalyptic pose, the Feel the Power series entices viewers to feel the emotion of the boy who's ready for whatever may come.
