My name is Mariusz Kedzierski and I’m 23-year-old Polish artist. Mostly, I make realistic or hyperrealistic drawings. Most of them are portraits.

His photos, done in his signature double-exposure style, create a subtle gradient that turns these wild beasts’ feathers and fur into images of their habitats.
