Featured Artist: Pawel Nolbert

New Weekly Post Series: Featured Artists

Today I’d like to introduce a new weekly post series: featured artists. We’ve come to realize that whilst every design blog features typical roundup posts, very few actually give much deserved credit to the huge creative talents within the industry.

Well we’re keen to recognize these talents, and hopefully give something back to the community in doing so. Furthermore, we feel that this is where the real inspiration lies. Anyone can Google ‘retro Photoshop brushes’ but it can be tricky to discover some of the hidden gems of the community. The artist’s we’ll be featuring are all incredibly talented, and give us all something to aspire to.

We hope that you enjoy the new weekly series, and would love to get some feedback. Feel free to vote below and let us know if you’re interested in checking out digital talent:

Featured Artist: Pawel Nolbert

Today we’re kicking things off with one of my favorite digital artists, Pawel Nolbert. Pawel is a hugely inspiring artist from Warsaw, Poland. He specializes in vibrant photo manipulations that display endless levels of detail and finesse. For me what makes the difference between a good artist and a great artist is this keen eye for detail, and in each one of Pawel’s works you get a feeling for the time and attention spent on each area. Check out some of his work below:

Tiger – The World

Polaroid Grey Label

Art Direction

Nvidia – 3D Your PC

Cosentino ECO


Cappy KV

Avatar The Game


Redds Ekspresja Redds

Naturally Create

    Great work Pawel! I really enjoyed the feature and have been following your work for a while on Behance. Keep up the great work!

  2. Chris says:

    Wow some amazing pieces! He does have an excellent use of vibrant colors and very eye-catching work!

  3. Tom says:

    Yeah Pawel has some incredible work and has been an inspiration for me for a while now. It’s perhaps his most popular but Chocolatopia never ceases to amaze me :) .

  4. Eric Vasquez says:

    I agree, Chocolatopia is a really wonderful piece, especially the lighting and the values of the piece. Tiger – The World and Cappy KV are also pretty stunning I think.
