Leszek Kostuj’s Storybook Like Paintings of Otherworldly Characters

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

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.
