Mateus Gapski Explores the Supernatural

Polish artist Mateus Gapski is half of the street art duo Etam Cru, who have recently been getting recognition for their enormous, detailed murals. In addition to his proficiency with spray paint, Gapski deftly translates his ideas into his studio work. His oil and acrylic paintings on canvas explore Eastern European folkloric themes with a contemporary aesthetic, placing female protagonists in wooded settings where elements of the supernatural creep in. Take a look at some of Gapski's studio work after the jump.
