crowning glory to the intricate geometry of his characters, giving to each one a personality distinct and different from the next. There is never a dull moment in any of this artist’s paintings. He is able to play out all emotions with the skill of a highly trained musician causing his work to stand out from the crowd in a manner that is refreshingly unique delivering a full range of enjoyment from the sublime to the outlandishly flamboyant. In synopsis Leszek Kostuj is an artist’s artist, bringing a blend of technical mastery and craft coupled with a vivid imagination and proven inventiveness exploring the science of color and texture to a degree that reaches a inexorable flashpoint then explodes on the canvas in such a way that all from the novice to professional career artist must take notice and applaud. In his art there are a million stories behind every character, as they live in worlds beyond the natural man’s ability to comprehend. They are on phantasmagorical planes of existence where it would seem all things are possible and all the while, behind the scenes, there are mechanics, keepers of air and forest that keep the planet engines pulsating smoothly in sidereal time creating a happy and peaceful universe in which they function and frolic. I find this style of art freeing and uplifting in a sense that it knows no boundaries, there are no limits on the mind here only a welcoming warmth that greets you at the door and bids one to dream for a while perhaps to live out a childhood fantasy. This is compelling art as art should be and it demands that you seek out more and delve deeper into its well of robust richness. I encourage everyone who reads this article to really look very closely at Leszek art take a deep breath of it and see for yourself if you are not thoroughly delighted

with it. Upon encountering the attractiveness of Leszek’s style we at WalkingBlind made a unanimous decision to make his art work our cover for this months issue; there are times you just know when you see certain pieces you want to honor them in that way and we hope we have. We are very thankful for the willingness of this artist to allow us to publish his work in this issue and also wish to thank him for the fast response that he gave us.

I personally believe once you discover, as I did, the absolute brilliance it holds within, that you will be hooked returning again and again to this wonderful realm of budding possibilities. “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” -Albert Einstein
