Polish illustrator, artist, and co-owner of Morski Studio Graficzne Igor Morski creates surreal images imbued with hidden meaning. He graduated with honors from the Interior Architecture and Industrial Design Faculty at the State Higher School of Fine Art in Poznań, and worked for public broadcasting in the 80s and 90s, before finally pursuing a career in press illustration. Morski opened his own studio in 1995.

"Sometimes I used to use popular symbols, such as Pinocchio’s long nose," Morski told Bored Panda. "However, most frequently I have tried to think up my own symbols. For example, [my piece] “creative archaeology” is about the commercialisation of archaeology. There, I depict a halved human head filled with the sand with a stylised figure of Indiana Jones, the archaeologist, at the top. The symbolism becomes clear. On the one hand, you have the head filled with the sand, on the other, the figure digging in it."

I was a single parent myself for a while. This illustrates the situation perfectly! I had to row against my ex while having the added weight of the children.

Or a boy growing into society's definition of what a man is supposed to be. What our definition of masculinity has evolved into.

We are made of Earth. When we die we will return to the earth. But, in the meantime, life is a beautiful dance.

We say in Poland that "someone is making water out of your brain", when you are manipulated.

I believe that the circle with the man "traped" inside is the routine we have each day. But only the human. The birds appear to be free at all times...and the difference between them is just...sad

I see a child controlling his elder self. The moon is a terrific allegory for the lens of fantasy through which we viewed adulthood.

Inside: i am still a young girl, wishing to fly away. To escape. Why were birds born with wings, and not I?
