Pop culture dystopia by Filip Hodas
Have you ever imagined how the decay of pop culture would look like?
Czech digital designer Filip Hodas build a dystopian landscape of corroded cartoon characters, decomposing doll eyes and polluted pop icons through a series of digitally-painted portraits depicting cultural idols in a state of severe corrosion. Hodas has dedicated its latest collection of imagery to Pop Culture Dystopia.
In it, popular cartoon classics like Pac Man, or the Super Mario kart mushroom are graffitied, dirtied and disintegrated beyond repair, while McDonald’s happy meals and Coca-Cola cans become underground settings. Hodas says that the main goal of this series was the improvement of his skills and “to learn how to use substance painter and how to implement it in my texturing workflow.“
