Igor Maykov

Posted in art, surreal with tags , on July 10, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

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.

Igor Maikov 1966 - Russian painter - Tutt'Art@ (8)

He’s quite adept at achieving a kind of soft luminosity in his work.

But has the ability to create more striking, vivid portraiture as well.

Ah, may all our angels and demons make peace and toast together.

Neal Murren works with pen, pencil, paint and Photoshop to make wild, surreal collages of fantasy and fairy tale worlds.

One feels far down the rabbit hole when looking at these images, where the laws of physics and nature impose no constraints on the inhabitants.

His elaborate typography work is stunning as well.

Somphong Adulyasarapan and Prateep Kochabua

Posted in art, surreal with tags , on July 7, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

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

Posted in art, surreal with tags , , on July 4, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

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, Agn├Ęs 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.

Redd Walitzki

I’ve been following Redd Walitzki’s work for years and was under the impression that I had already posted about her (oops!).

Redd Walitzki

Her portraits are ethereal, fluid and sensual, yet somehow wild…unbridled.

Emergence

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.

Nathalia Suellen

Posted in art, surreal with tags , , , on June 25, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Nathalia Suellen is an incredibly talented young Brazillian artist, whose saturated colors and vivid surrealist narratives remind me of the great Ray Caesar and Natalie Shau (I think the three of them are the best at this type of photo-hybrid art in the world).

From the artist bio:
Her current artworks are born from a high-detailed mixture of photography, 3D and digital painting showing a signature style that blends symbolism, retro-futurism, death and dystopia with extremely colorful surrealistic worlds. Her main characters are often captured in scenes where something sad is about to happen, as if they were trapped in a bad dream.
