Stenciling can get a bit repetitive. Thank god there’s a new and twisted mind that comes around every so often to brighten things up a bit…or rather, to anhiliate any lightness within sight. Its 6 feet under for the old…and the tombstone – images with such haunting beauty that you never once feel sorry for their ancestors resting in the ground.

Roland I Feel You – Get Well Soon
Digital and analogue art meeting half way: the result speaks for itself.
The black and white cross hatching – the deeds of the hand – and the clean, slick look of the computer generated colors – the deeds of countless little pixels – combine to create the perfect world of imagination. Grzegorz Domaradzki’s portfolio is a clash of colors and grays. The pieces hold power, the expressions are flawless, unspoiled and truthful – each face a mirror of internal conflict, love, betrayal…
Clicking on each project, one can see the detailed approach used by the artist. He seamlessly combines graphic elements with fine art – the cyborg realm in perfect harmony with the human one.
