Stark Photorealistic Paintings of Post-Apocalyptic Landscapes

As someone who’s all about the (post-) apocalypse, it’s perhaps not surprising that I find the work of Polish artist Michal Karcz appealing — his startling paintings, which we spotted via Faith is Torment, create stark visions of a world shattered by some nameless disaster. Karcz apparently started his career as a photographer, which perhaps explains the photorealistic nature of his pictures — there’s an element of surrealism to them, too, which makes the visions of familiar landmarks like the White House and the Chrysler Building all the more striking. You can see more of Karcz’s work at his website.
