#Art of Fantasy 81: Slawomir Maniak

Slawomir-Maniak-16

My apologies for the post being this late. I have excuses. Good ones. Oh, look! A pink albatross!

Our artist this week paints with lightning and thunder. Slawomir Maniak hails from Gdansk, Poland and works as a freelance illustrator and concept artist. His clients include Wizards of the Coast, Wizkids, Sony Entertainment, Pinnacle, and a bunch of other well-known companies. And he is good.

Below you’ll find a small collection of Slawomir’s work. Each image links back to the site of origin. Enjoy!

 Like I said above, Slawomir paints with lightning and thunder. His paintings crackle with energy and power. Violence bubbles under the surface, pushing against the digital canvas, threatening to tear the thin veil between our world and the fantasy one. Or maybe that is just my imagination wanting to cross over. Whatever. I love this artist.

What do you think? Share your thoughts with me in the comment section below. And don’t forget to check out this week’s Art of Science Fiction over on Kōsa Press.
