Jakub Rozalski is a Polish concept artist and illustrator based in Krakow. His work, particularly in a series involving mecha in the context of rural farms, is particularly interesting for the way it combines sci-fi concepts with naturalistic landscape rendering.
Though primarily digital, Rozalski’s landscapes and machines have a wonderfully painterly feeling. In many cases, his landscapes, if they were done in traditional media, would serve nicely as stand alone gallery landscape paintings.
His farmlands are inhabited by working peasants that might have come from the 19th century or earlier, juxtaposed with what appear to be World War I era soldiers and grimy retro-futuristic mechs that somehow traverse the centuries as though they had always been present.
Rozalski blends these elements with his naturalistic, atmospheric and painterly approach into a seamless evocation of an alternate history.
Rozalski does’t have a dedicated website, instead relying on an ArtStation portfolio and Tumblr blog as his web presence. Neither provide a great deal of background information on the artist, but the mecha-amid-peasants series appears to be related to a game called Scythe.
There is an interview with the artist on print24.
