Michael Ramstead

Manifestation was the first painting I saw from Michael Ramstead. I love this representation of the colorful, boundlessly imaginative world we inhabit in our peaceful altered states.


Other works are slightly more menacing…

…or alien.

Is this an ominous image of the undead ushering a child into her doom? Is the skeleton excited to show her fantastic hidden realms? Is he just playing hide and go seek?

Although he’s a talented portrait artist, many of his pieces combine pop culture, technology, cryptids, ghosts and nature (as you may have guessed, those are my favorites.

  1. I don’t know whether to trust the skeleton! Or the tentacle-boy. Perhaps I’m just prejudiced against bones and third eyes?
