Graphic and web designer Fabio Sasso is best known for his Photoshop artworks and tutorials. He is also co-founder of Zee, a web-design studio and runs a hugely successful digital arts and creativity blog, Abduzeedo.

Mosiacs generally make you think of the Roman villas you visited on school trips, or those pictures-within-pictures that appeared on every student’s bedroom wall after the craze for Magic Eye images died. They don’t automatically conjure visions of stylish artwork, but Fabio Sasso has found a way to create truly striking visuals with a very simple, swift process.

The idea is try to simulate a mosaic but with a more abstract and up-to-date interpretation.
