Dribblack offers hyper-realistic drawings at its best. The artist's feed is filled with highly detailed drawings of pretty much everything - from architecture to the human anatomy, to comic book characters and nature. His abstract take on these subjects are also rather stunning and vibrant.

If you've got a dark mind, you're going to really appreciate Ajim's feed, which is filled with sprawling sketches that combine architectural elements with organic anatomies. The result is a collection of eerie yet wholesome images.

You may have seen the likes of Cloakwork's "signature" tagged along the streets of Kuala Lumpur and more, but this graffiti artist's feed offers a lot more than that. Cloakwork's pieces often take on characters, adorned with vibrant colours and personalities.   

 

 

Kupeh Rodriguez @kupeh_rod

Kupeh's artwork is both comical and vibrant, like something you'd see in a vintage comic magazine. His sketches are altogether fun, twisted and a little mind-bending.
