Strange Hybrids by Marcin Schleifer

May 23, 2013

Marcin Schleifer's monochrome illustrations consist of odd juxtapositions, strange combinations set in stark and simple compositions. 'I live and create in Gdynia. I graduated in Graphic Design from Fine Arts Academy in Poland. Graphic masters, like Albrecht Durer, Gustave Dore and M.C.Escher have placed great influence on me. My technique is similar to engraving, however I draw on paper and use fineliner. I put lines in order and make them one by one into completeness. It’s similar to a print machine but it’s hand printed. When I draw I look through ”the other side of the mirror” trying to pour all imaginations and world’s observations on the paper.'
