Mad Skills Monday 054: Andras Csuka

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 escape to the colorful fantasy worlds of Andras Csuka.

Power song: The Lady in the Moon – Gabor Szabo

The 3D-effect illustrations of Andras Csuka explores fantasy elements through landscapes and shapes. Influenced by cartoons and surrealist art, his images often invoke a pareidolia in which objects are arranged into expressive faces. Andras treats this creative process as a form of escapism when not working on commercial projects.
