It is always nice to see a skilled fantasy surreal painter, as is the case with artist Jacek Yerka. His paintings, at times, look like the inspiration of for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Delicatessen. That is a very good thing. Look at a mini-portfolio after the jump . . .

Earlier this month, AFA gallery Soho opened “The Nature of Evolution,” a collection of new works by Jean Pierre Arboleda. The images are densely packed with deftly rendered creatures, a herpetologists dream, frogs and lizards abound. The paintings and drawings all bear witness to Arboleda’s masterful execution of detail through the slow buildup of small hatch marks. Most of the larger works in the show are works on paper, acrylic paint worked over drawings made with colored pencil, while many of the smaller works are oil on panel.
