FrodoK's Profile Picture
Leszek Kostuj
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
My name is Leszek Kostuj. I was born in Pleszew, in 1973.
I graduated from Pedagogy and Art Department at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. I am involved in painting, drawing, and traditional and computer graphics. Oil and acrylic painting is my preferred favourite.

I started from small realistic drawings, then paintings inspired by surrealism cropped up, and works at the boundary of surrealism and allusive abstraction.
My art is in constant change, I am in search of the forms of artistic communication that would be optimal for me. When I begin to paint, it is quite frequent that I do not ponder over the final effect.

Only when on the surface of the painting, the emerging patches, lines, colours begin to coalesce, the imagination rouses and provides an impulse to further artistic release. At this stage of creation, what begins to appear is ideas, visions, and concepts – all in order to create a work that is a fulfilment of my artistic and aesthetic needs.

Absolutely beautiful work!

Your works transport me back to my childhood. When everything was both wondrous, uncertain and terrifying. When there was much I didn't understand and daren't question. Even your most innocuous paintings give me that strange, otherwordly feeling. They invite me in to try and understand, but at the same time I feel like I'm intruding and I don't belong. I can only look at your beautiful gallery in wonder.

Hi, I'm a 17 year old student from Australia. I really like your art and have chosen you as one of my artists for an assignment I'm doing. I checked your bio, but there's nothing on Artistic, Environmental or Cultural Influences. Would you mind giving me a brief summary of these things please?

The eyes they say, are the windows to the soul.

You see the world like a god. Wonderful.

It is the eyes of your creatures that first entranced me, you always manage to give them such depth and life. The textures of your pieces are also completely wonderful, there is such great contrast between completely smooth and jagged shards that I could (and do) stare at your works for long amounts of time and still be captivated just by the aesthetic appeal. You make magical art and I always look forward to seeing your creations :icongirsmileplz:

your art is unique and you have a style of painting that i greatly admire. one of your prints could quite possibly be one of my next purchases. do you have originals or do you only sell your art on this website?

Man I'm honestly in love with your paintings although I wish you would show more different places and creatures of your world since it's almost allways these bird like creatures with big eyes. Which look fantastic by the way.
