    Marcus Mrugalla: Einblick Auptraum

Marcus Mrugalla has an alter ego that allows him to make stunning work

Posted by James Cartwright,

Marcus Mrugalla is a bit of an enigma – his website is divided into two, one side for himself and the other for his artist alter-ego Marek Jung. As a designer, artist, photographer and art director perhaps it’s just easier to compartmentalise your creative life into two separate egos – it certainly seems to be working for Marcus. The Berlin-based Polish creative has a stunning body of work encompassing his four disciplines, from sumptuous artist books to highly-polished digital renders.

Graphically, Markus’ work is very much of the moment, aligning itself with the New Aesthetic in its appropriation of digital elements across both digital and physical work. Powerful roman typefaces sit above shimmering semi-organic objects created with modelling software. Similarly his personal artwork is created digitally, but constantly strives to echo real world objects – giant iridescent bubbles, water droplets and hazy smoke. It’s a powerful combination of elements that has left us transfixed on more than one occasion.
