Intensely Detailed Drawings of Secret Rooms and Complex Mazes

Our favorite art is that which expands infinitely off the page, infecting our minds and inspiring imaginary additions for days. Canadian illustrator Mathew Borrett’s incredible, mysterious drawings of mazes within scraps of building, secret compartments within secret compartments, and locked away rooms, which we spotted over at Beautiful/Decay, do just that, sending our minds in as many directions as their shifty hallways. After all, these surrealistic depictions of buildings might as well be metaphoric depictions of mind… or maybe not. Think on that as you click through to see some of our favorites from the series, and then head on over to Borrett’s website to check out even more of his work.
