Fantastic Reality

Michael Komarck

A muscular man holding a pistol is surrounded by ravens A white-haired woman in an ornate blue kimono brandishes a katana. A brave archer faces down a fierce red dragon.

Your first impression of Michael Komarck‘s collected works might very well be of a time-traveling adventurer’s photo album. The subjects of his lavishly-detailed illustrations reach to nearly every corner of recorded history — and unhistory.

From feudal Japan and ancient Rome, to Lovecraftian dark fantasy and cyberpunk magic-users, each scene is executed with flawless precision and simmering energy. Mr. Komarck isn’t limited by his realism, however. Somewhere between the countless layers of visual information, he also manages to capture the emotional undercurrents of his subjects.

Blurring the lines of ages past and timeless mythology, Michael will convince you he’s seen it all. Who are we to say otherwise?
