By  | 

Waldemar von Kazak is a Russian artist who loves to play around with surrealism and social commentary. He makes the most of using sexual tension and bizarre characters to capture viewers’ imaginations.

In an interview with Pinup Arena, Waldemar von Kazak said,

I began to draw after unsuccessful contact with a Large iron swing when I was small,”For years I worked hard as a designer. I was engaged in packing, advertising polygraphy and book design. But at some point I wanted to draw again. Today I am an illustrator.

Check out his surreal, dark illustrations that have hidden messages exposing social issues faced by both men and women:

A microbiologist turned Public Relations manager turned blogger, I live to cherish the awesomeness life showers daily. After trying my hands on Microbiology, advertising, journalism, marketing and Public Relations, I have now stagnated to my first ever love, writing. When I’m not writing, editing or watching sitcoms, you can find me eating chocolates.
