Polish artist Leszek Kostuj paints fanciful worlds populated by otherworldly creatures. There is something playful, childlike, and naive about his work, with its simplified forms and friendly-looking characters. Throughout Kostuj’s multi-dimentional compositions, his characters’ eyes grab viewers’ attention. He paints them in profile, evoking Ancient Egyptian wall paintings. The round, marble-like pupils draw us into his strange, storybook-like universe.
