Mind-Blowing futuristic concept art by the Argentinian Alejandro Burdisio with heavy influences from the architecture and automotive sectors in Argentinian history in a world he describes as “Universo Chatarra”. Additional artwork is available at ArtStation or you can also follow him on Instagram.

I don’t have an optimistic view of what technology can do for us, as human behavior leaves much to be desired. I include a lot of corrugated roofing in my work, which is a symbol of poverty all over Latin America. Many folks from countries like Pakistan, India, and Turkey empathize with my illustrations; they certainly understand the meaning of corrugated roofing, perhaps because poverty is more explicit in the developing world. An American may see those roof panels as quaint or colorful, but I believe they may not read it as a symbol. With Universo Chatarra I didn’t invent anything. I simply combine things that are already there.
