    Reminds me a bit of Zdzislaw Beksinski...

    Tip: You can drag images directly into google-search (gotta press images first though) and search their entire image database. More effective than tineye

    I notice he's also from Poland, just like Beksinski. So feel free to call me psychic. :-)

    Thanks guys! It's true his early works are very very Beksinski. If you look at his newer stuff it looks more original.

    I've noticed there's a LOT of Polish artists with Beksinski-esque work, or who at least go through a Beksinski phase... Hey, the dude was influential, I guess.

    There's also been a strong tendency towards the surreal in Poland for many decades now (heck, look at their posters from the Seventies and Eighties...) That'll do it, too.

    Great site! Rafal Olbinski was my senior portfolio instructor in school. I also like Wiktor Sadowski's work a lot.

    Olbinski is one of those Polish artists who found a way into the American market, love his stuff too Tristan. Not as edgy as Sadowski or some of the others but communicates on more levels. I never miss introducing the Polish poster gang when doing a poster assignment. Inspirational.
