Piotr Lesniak is a Polish illustrator and sculptor. While this post only focuses on his illustration work, his sculptures (and medal works) are equally great and deserving of their own post.

How refreshing.”, “Look who’s in town for Super Bowl LIII” and “Hey Atlanta. […]

An unusual series of Russian and Ukrainian Posters 1917-1921 “In Red Automobile to the Kingdom of Communism” Compared to the more colorful, conventional styled poster art of the Revolutionary period in Russia, this series seems quite primitive, naive.
