The Fantastical Digital Compositions of Nois7
Robert Jahns is a master of illusion. When he isn’t traveling the globe photographing exotic landscapes, he’s behind his computer, carefully crafting dreamlike vistas that couldn’t possibly exist in the real world. The Hamburg-based digital artist, better known as Nois7, is a bonafide Instagram star whose creations of dazzling cityscapes and fanciful panoramas have amassed him more than one million loyal fans. Working within a blend of realist aesthetics and surrealist sensibilities, Jahns compositions form awe-inspiring scenes, like a reindeer with trees for antlers, or an elephant weightlessly hoisted over New York City by helium balloons. We spoke with Jahn about his artistic practice, his inspiration and the future of Nois7.
