These dark drawings by Russian artist Waldemar von Kazak flirt with surrealism and social issues commentary, using sexual tension and bizarre characters to give some food for thought.

Though von Kazak went to school for design, he eventually returned to his greatest passion – drawing, and illustration. “I began to draw after unsuccessful contact with a large iron swing when I was small,” he said in an interview with Pinup Arena. “For years I worked hard as a designer. I was engaged in packing, advertising polygraph, and book design. But at some point, I wanted to go back to my drawing ideas. Today I am an illustrator.”

Some of his sexually-charged controversial artworks touch upon social issues like men and women’s relationship or the tedium of our daily lives, but other cool drawings are simply fantastic sci-fi pin-up art. Be sure to check out more of his dark humor filled work, but be aware that some of it can be NSFW!
