There are both surreal and subtly odd things going on in this photo series bt Andi Galdi Vinko for Dazed. The Hungarian artist says of the series, “I usually only work with hairstylists and makeup artists when it comes to commissioned projects and usually our hands are tied and we can't go crazy. Here, we had no rules to follow, no client and no demands”. Well, she and her friends basically have made us all wonder if you are supposed to have glue that close to your belly button.

We started the morning looking at photography manipulator Gabriel Isak's "The Shadow and the Self" series (the one with the blue backgrounds) but then fell into a bunch of his work and found a selection for you today. Born in Sweden, "Gabriel is currently residing in San Francisco where he is pursuing his dream as a photographer at Academy of Art University."

Because we are at the end of the year, we are having some more playful posts on the site this week. INeedAGuide posted these amazingly bizarre photo manipulations from Japanese artist Izumi Miyazaki, and we like it when artists take the Murakami/magical realist vibe and make it even more surreal.

This series has had us in a good mood all morning, with its oddly surreal details and hidden pleasures in each shot. Some are more on a new erotic type style, others are just plain oddball, but mostly these are well-executed works from the Rennes/Paris-based artist Ines Kozic.

We have always been huge fans of the works of Aya Uekawa, an artist we have featured in the magazine in the past because of her incredibly surreal but classic portrait styles and methods. We haven't checked in with the artist in a bit, but we compiled a collection of some of her recent works as well as a few classics from past shows in NYC and Europe.

If you want to be disoriented, as well as impressed, then these "polyhedral panorama" illustrations from Rorik Smith are quite amazing to behold. The North Wales based artist says of his work, "Dedicated to the solution of visual problems, the development and application of graphical representation systems to investigate and record the character of collections..."

We are spending some time being mesmerized by artist Alex K. Gardner’s fascination with water.

The artist José Luis López Galván was born in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco Mexico in 1985. He was seduced by oil painting early on, and now it is the medium in which he works almost completely. He uses visual media to communicate concepts like death, fear or hypocrisy, without limitations of content in his work...

We just felt like taking another look at the fantastic paintings of Japan's Marefumi Komura, both grotesque and engrossing at the same time. Maybe its just me, but does it look like these subjects are totally at peace with the destruction that is going on within them?
