Someone should hire Leszek Andrzej Kostuj to be the concept artist for a film. If these vibrant bird illustrations are any indication, he has no problem creating fantastical worlds with imaginative characters similar to big names like Tim Burton and Guillermo del Toro.
Leszek Andrzej Kostuj currently resides in Poland, where he continues to work on his art in both a digital and analog capacity. Many of his paintings feature bulbous-eyed characters. This immediately invokes a connection between viewers and his paintings as it’s nearly impossible to stare at his multi-hued irises and not be entranced by their hypnotic look.
Recurrent subjects found within Leszek Andrzej Kostuj’s paintings include birds, fishes and personified trees. Kostuj always manages to find inventive ways to express these characters despite having used them on multiple occasions.
