Digital illustrations of dystopian worlds by Polish artist Michal Karcz.
Starting out as a painter and photographer, which helped him develop his own vision, he left the paintbrush and switch to digital tools “to generate unique realities that were impossible to create with ordinary dark room techniques.”
Karcz’s inspiration comes from listening to music and his visual interpretations of surreal worlds and a possible future leaves you with a feeling of fascination as well as dread.
Most of my work is like a journey to the places which don’t exist.
Places from my dreams, desire, imagination and fears. My inspiration comes from many artists and it doesn’t matter if they get through to me by the sense of vision or hearing.
I can tell that music has the biggest impact on my work. It’s an inseparable element with pictures in my mind, a kind of sound illustration to a visible scenery.
These two things hit me with the strongest intensity.
