“I just love wild nature and animals. Werewolves are for me the epitome of the wild, the original force of nature, brute strength. I always imagined them, not as evil monsters, but more as mythical guardians of the old order of nature. I think that deep inside, everyone has something of the werewolf.”
In the world of Mr. Werewolf, the past and future, reality and fantasy, history and mystery, and tragedy and triumph all meet at the center of an ancient footbridge, one that both supports and exposes all of those things once hidden, whether in plain sight or in the imagination. All of those things which wrestle in Mr. Werewolf’s core, where he simultaneously battles, conquers and feeds his inner beast, each day.
This is Jakub Rozalski’s world. This is the reality he’s created, the seeds planted during a childhood spent in a small village located in northern Poland. As a painter, conceptual artist and illustrator, Rozalski (better known as Mr. Werewolf) draws from his natural passions - history and ancient beliefs - to create a completely reimagined picture of Eastern Europe during the 1920s.
