Hernan Faraci

Posted in art, surreal with tags , on July 27, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I love when artists find the SheWalksSoftly Facebook Page (please add and/or friend suggest it, if you haven’t!) and I get to discover new work I might not have otherwise seen. I’m loving some of these colorfully frenetic pieces by Hernan Faraci.

Some call to mind the art of Ralph Steadman…

Miss Aniela

Miss Aniela has earned a spot among my favorite photographers.

I would love to take a photo like this one day (I’d be drooling over this image even if it had no subject and were simply the library)!

Her Surreal Fashion series is stunning…full of rich, unique scenery.

I’m actually heading to the ER this morning, so I’ll keep this post short. Enjoy the wonderful surreal creations of Lee Harvey Roswell.

Michael Cheval’s surrealist paintings delve into absurd, inverted realities.

Stranger than dreamscapes, his worlds are full of life and sweeping motion, serene and languid faces.

Here he find the waking earthly laws of physics suspended. Metaphor…illusion…allusion…it all tempts the viewer to craft a story.

Check out the undead (and maybe dead) creations of Jeff Christensen.

Many of his paintings have an “interdimensional” feel to them, as if his subjects are exploring strange worlds or navigating between them.

Andrew Ferez

Andrew Ferez is responsible for two pieces I’ve loved for quite a while without knowing the artist. Aren’t these first two really spectacular?

His work reminds me a bit of Jacek Yerka with its fine details and blending of architecture, human invention and nature.

Many of his creations seem to contain a prominent fire element; a bit of burning chaos and/or illumination.

I’d like a a bumper sticker of this painting that says MY OTHER CAR IS A TALONED FISH SAXOPHONE WITH WHEELS.

Jacob Gagnon

Posted in art, surreal with tags , on May 9, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I was intrigued and rather delighted when I saw Jacob Gagnon’s tea and cupcake display…populated with miniature giraffes and ladders (of COURSE they need ladders! How would they reach the top teacups otherwise?).

Cakes and Ladders

In his portfolio we find all kinds of creatures strangely interacting with household items.
Sea-horsing Around

In fact, I can safely say I’ve never seen such a proliferation of wild animals and fine china.
Tablewear

And I adore the way he skews the scale of his subjects.

Colette Calascione

Colette Calascione creates beautifully odd surreal fine art. Many of her subjects are, quite literally, two faced.

I think this is what’s inside my chest cavity too.

I adore this brightly colored reworking of the original Max Ernst illustration.

Paul Roustan: The Camouflaged Moth

Posted in art, surreal, video with tags , , on April 10, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Paul Roustan is an extremely gifted body painter. Can you tell there is a woman in the center of this moth?

Watch her emerge:

I recommend looking at his whole body of work (pun intended) here.
