Surreal illustrations place a modern character in ancient mythology

Surreal illustrations place a modern character in ancient mythology

Matt Panuska creates strange surreal illustrations that leave the viewer with a sense of oddity and curiosity.

Each narrative image stems from a consistent drawing style and features similar characters.

This makes it seem like each picture is its own new dream with a unique scenario.

The Brooklyn-based illustrator is heavily influenced by mythology of Nordic and Far-Eastern cultures.

This historical inspiration mixed with modern elements like fashion make for an intriguing series of work.

 Panuska’s client work includes illustration for The New Yorker, The New York Times, Lucky Peach and Pitchfork Review.
