Have you ever held an old gadget in your hand, a relic from your childhood, and felt a pang of nostalgia? Remember the chunky flip phones, the brick-like MP3 players, or the first digital cameras with their tiny screens? Like many others, I vividly remember my first Samsung phone. It was a small, brick-like device with a satisfyingly clicky keypad that felt reassuringly substantial in my tiny hands. It was a gateway to a whole new world of communication and entertainment – a world that seems quaint compared to the sleek smartphones of today.

Aryaman Munish, the 22-year-old creative powerhouse known as 'MUN15H', taps into that very well of reminiscence with his project, 'Retro Posters for Our Tribalized Devices'. MUN15H, is a rising star in the world of 3D visuals and typography. At just 22 years old, his work has graced the visuals of renowned musicians such as Nicki Minaj, Ice Spice, Becky G, Rema, Labrinth, T-Pain, and Trippie Redd. His collaborations extend to prestigious beauty and fashion brands like Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, Sephora, KVD, and Ole Henriksen.

This project is a confluence of the past and present, a visual conversation starter that sparks memories and ignites the imagination. Munish is actively bringing it into a dialogue with the aesthetics of today. The project explores the burgeoning neo-tribal movement, a design style characterized by bold colors, geometric shapes, and a distinct cyber-punk edge. It's a perfect marriage that melds the nostalgia we hold for those early 2000s devices with the cutting-edge styles that define the future as we see it today. This fusion is not just an aesthetic choice but a commentary on how our perception of technology evolves over time, blending the familiar with the futuristic.

Inspired by classic advertisements from iconic brands like Nike, Nintendo, and Sony, the designs evoke a wave of retro charm. But beneath the surface lies a deeper theme. MUN15H envisions these devices not just as relics but as tribal totems. These were the gadgets that revolutionized communication and entertainment in our youth. They were badges of identity, connecting us to a nascent digital world.

Through his work, MUN15H encourages us to explore the connections between our past and present. We get to embrace the nostalgia for the devices that shaped our early digital lives while simultaneously recognizing their evolution and place in the ever-evolving technological landscape. With 'Retro Posters for Our Tribalized Devices', MUN15H is starting a conversation about our technological heritage while looking forward to the neon-lit horizons of the future.

Driven by a passion to consume culture and create immersive universes, Aryaman's approach to art is experimental, constantly pushing boundaries and exploring new styles. We can't wait to see what he does next.
