35 Surreal Illustrations That Will Make You Question The ‘Normalcy’ Of Society
This Polish artist’s surreal work is as thought-provoking as it is beautiful.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and artist Igor Morski is an expert at conveying powerful truths through condemning illustrations. Just take a look at his controversial artwork below. Each piece calls out an ugly aspect of society while inspiring its appraiser to question the ‘norms’ we’ve all grown accustomed to.
According to DeMilked, the Polish artist and co-owner of Morski Studio Graficzne graduated with honors from the Interior Architecture and Industrial Design Faculty at the State Higher School of Fine Art in Poznań. He worked for public broadcasting in the 80’s and 90’s before finally pursuing a career in press illustration. In 1995, he opened his first studio.
While working at Wprost magazine, Morski was inspired to cultivate his surrealist style. He says:
“This, I must admit, made a great impression, because people were not familiar with Photoshop, and many illustrations were taken literally, as if what was shown in the illustration was really true. This was especially true of photomontages with politicians. The fact that since then I have worked on photographic material has caused realism to appear in my work. The mere fact of depicting everything upside down has made me a surrealist.”
