Today we have one of my old lowbrow style pop surrealism favorites, Joe Vaux.

It’s been such a long time since I’ve seen her work in person, but it’s really a sight to behold.
Her paintings (often very large scale) transport you into a psychedelic wonderland of dark, sickly sweet delights.
Be sure to catch the show if you can!
I couldn’t find much biographical information on Latvian surrealist painter Igor Maikov but he has some fabulous paintings. This one is by far my favorite. I cannot stop looking at it.
Neal Murren works with pen, pencil, paint and Photoshop to make wild, surreal collages of fantasy and fairy tale worlds.
Today I give you two artists because I couldn’t decide on just one from the dizzying, gorgeous display of surreal oil paintings from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bangkok.
The first is Prateep Kochabua.
Next, the strange alien worlds of Somphong Adulyasarapan…
I definitely recommending browsing the contents of the museum via Google Arts and Culture. There’s so much bizarre beauty!
Agnes Boullouche paints surreal scenes of humans, animals, flora and other strange visitors co-mingling in decadent royal court costumes, masquerade masks and lavish embellishments.
From the artist bio:
As far as she can remember, Agnès has always been the close friend of a population of fabulous beasts, countless chimeras, gorgons and genies. This painting lady lives in a fantastic realm haunted by humanimal creatures dancing, riding on each other and spinning their horned feet through the antique chessboards of extraordinary stone-paved gardens. She is back from the beyond, and dreams with her eyes wide open. You won’t believe it till you see it.
I’ve been following Redd Walitzki’s work for years and was under the impression that I had already posted about her (oops!).
Her portraits are ethereal, fluid and sensual, yet somehow wild…unbridled.
Each piece is done on an intricately designed laser cut frame which, unlike traditional frames, serves as an actual part of the image itself. I love the unique uncontained effect this technique creates!
These pieces are even more lovely in person. Definitely check out her work if you get a chance.
