Mistakes Making Traits is a visual exploration of how our culture is quickly merging with technology. Michalski's imagery conveys worlds where the line between organic and machine becomes blurred, giving birth to fictitious creatures.

The artist's unique application of medium adds to the wonder and complexity of his work.
