Mad Skills Monday 044: Martynas Pavilonis

Welcome to Mad Skills Monday, where we showcase top work from young creatives to bring some inspiration to beat the post-weekend blues. Today we proudly present the spellbinding digital illustrations of Martynas Pavilonis.

Power tool: Pencil (digital or traditional whatever, it all starts from there)
Power song: Every day it’s a different one, today it’s Can You Feel My Heart by Bring Me The Horizon
Power snack: Black coffee and a cigarette

Martynas Pavilonis is an independent creative whose work draws inspiration from the night time and in particular how your imagination ‘awakens and creates things you would never see in daylight’. Nature also serves as a major influence, and these are combined to create forest landscapes where neon rays and mysterious beasts emerge from the shadows, evoking the styles of neo-romanticism and pop-surrealism. While this all may sound dark and spooky, Martynas’ work is, at heart, rather hopeful and endearing, and ultimately very beautiful.
