Artist of the Day: Karl Kwasny


Karl reflects on the ghosts of girlfriends past.

If Salvador Dali met Bryan Lee O’Malley in the back of an alley after having become obsessed with Alice in Wonderland and they somehow started making out and became one person and then got in the Tardis and came out in Australia in 2013, that would be how Karl Kwasny was born.

Karl Kwasny is an Australian illustrator, typographer and writer now living in New York.

His art is often surreal whimsical and childlike juxtaposed with themes of death and somberness. He likes Korean food and once designed for Mooks, the Melbourne fashion label. In short Karl Kwasny is pretty baller and you should look at his art.
