We showed you a great grouping from Polish surreal illustrator and digital artist, Igor Morski, last week, and we came across this fantastic image this morning and wanted to go into his more even more in depth. There isn't much else to say; in terms of creating surreal, imaginative universes, Igor is one of our favorites.

When we think of Warsaw, Poland, we don't always think of an endless summer, but Polish painter Kasia Domanska has created a powerfully bright series of oil on canvas works documenting a day at the beach that is currently on display at 532 Thomas Jaeckel in NYC through July 3, 2012. Each painting captures a fleeting moment of youth and light, works that capture a sense of innocent voyeurism.

This is the kind of thing we love to see in the morning; really well-composed, surreal mastery. Polish artist Igor Morski not only takes a figurative, photoreal approach, he creates the kind of fantastical situations and scenes that only the most peculiar of minds can really create.

Polish painter Tomek S?towski has one amazing imagination. He is creating what he calls "magical surrealism," aka, a very inventive mind. Endless details, mythical worlds, a sort of never-ending story meets prehistoric meets 3,000 years into the future is what we are getting from the Polish artist's work.

Former Brookyln-based photographer, Boogie, was in Katowice, Poland recently for the Katowice Street Art Festival, and while there, he did what a good photographer does; he took stunning black and white portraits and photos around the city. This one in particular, in a cafe, looks like something shot in 1920's Paris.

Combining similar simplistic styles to collaborate on a huge new mural for the Katowice Street Art Festival, Italian artists, Tellas and Moneyless, make a good team. The duo used monochromatic shapes and patterns with nice composition, to create a non-intrusive piece for the residents of Katowice, Poland.

It is always nice to see sense of humor in the art world, and the sculptures of Polish-born, American-based Adam Niklewicz, where he takes everyday household objects and furnishings and transforms them into sculptures, is some of the more playful work we have seen around in quite some time. As curator Steve Holmes writes, "His work evokes not homeland, but rather the absurdity of nostalgia, the futility of trying to be in any place other than the liminal space of the prefixed-American."
