Painter Paul Morstad creates mythical and enchanting map design paintings that infuse all kinds of bird imagery as well as precious jewel motifs and magical lands.

His astounding artwork reveals a penchant for exotic locations and the fantastical journeys of pirates and explorers who saw mysterious lands filled with unusual creatures for the first time on their travels. The maps have an aged vintage feeling to them, as though they have been around for centuries and have warped over time to adapt to the imaginative scenarios that occurred in their foreign landscapes.

Paul Morstad focuses his map design series on topography, which incorporates the life and narrative imagery of exotic wonders and the promise of treasure from far away lands. Stats for Mythical Topographic Paintings Trending: Older & Buzzing
