Wow! We guarantee these pioneering landscape paintings will blow your mind

Jakub Rozalski 2Enjoy history? Get a kick out of science fiction? If so, then you’ll love the digital artwork by Jakub Rozalski, a concept artist and illustrator based in Hamburg, Germany. He incorporates fantasy and sci-fi elements such as mechs, werewolves, and even Predator into historic and picturesque landscapes, resulting in artwork that’s both awe-inspiring and entertaining.

Jakub’s latest project 1920+ features giant, menacing mechs (and occasionally Wojtek, Polish bear/soldier of WWII) lurking around early 20th century Polish villages – a concept that may sound odd to some. But the series has just the right balance of weirdness, anachronism, and talent to really pull it off. And what good is concept art if it’s not a little weird? Check out a few of Jakub’s stunning artworks from the 1920+ project below and see for yourself!

    This stuff is ugly. The appeal of bucolic mixed with horror escapes me no matter how representative of real life it’s supposed to be, or even is, or how much it disturbs because that’s become a “function of art.” Gimme a break. This is no Guernica. And don’t think I’m unschooled. Conservative maybe (Ah! The dirty word!), but unschooled, not.

    Go study Michelangelo, do what he did one one-hundredth as well, consider his words, “The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection,” then get back to me.

    Or consider Hans Hofmann, the great abstract expressionist who said, “Creation is dominated by three…different factors…first, nature… second the artist, who creates a spiritual contract with nature and his materials, and third, the medium of expression through which the artist translates his inner world.” I would think the sensitive man or woman would do everything to resist frighteningly ugly inner worlds.

    The world has gone to hell – and that, very sorry to say, is represented here – not just by the art, so-called, but by those silly enough not to call a spade a spade.

      I applaud your degree in art history. I don’t recall anyone claiming this to be the work of a master. He may not have the most advanced technique, but he does have an interesting take on what is not so far from reality (the Marines have a working death ray, for chrissakes). And at the very least, his use of aerial perspective, composition, palette and proportion are all excellent, in my opinion.
