Exploring the Secret 'Cities' of Clouds and Bird Wings

Polish artist Marcin Ko?panowicz uses paint and pastels to craft billowy architecture disguised as tornados, clouds, birds, and more. Though if you ask him, he'll give you this instead: "I reach for pieces of colored clays and rub them against the rough surface of the board - and thus resulting drawings that magically provide food for me and my family." His Invisible Cities, featured recently on My Modern Met, show architecture not as paradigms of human's dominion over nature, but as organic structures inextricably linked to the nature they rise above. More of his work, below.
