The Surreal Universe of Heidi Taillefer

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 23, 2012
Ah, we love it when it gets a little weird and intriguing. Montreal-based painter, Heidi Taillefer makes some of the most intricate, detailed, and other-worldly images we have seen in quite some time. Citing the influence of early 20th century artists like Max Ernst, Giorgio deChirico, and Paul Delvaux, Taillefer has applied a futuristic vision to the early surrealists.

Fantasy Worlds by James McCarthy

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
James McCarthy has a wild imagination, one that he has high command over and can spill out into his artwork. The artist creates highly detailed, surreal universes that look like carnivals on distant planets. Where Dali meets science fiction...

Surreal and Absurd History by Paco Pomet

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
The histories that Paco Pomet's paints are absurd, bizarre, surreal, and humorous. Just when you think you are looking at a simple realistic painting, you notice that the man in the background has a woman's legs and is posed a little too sexy for his early 1900's facial hair. The Grenadian artist just posted a bunch of new works that were painted in 2012, and we got a kick out of each one.

Magical Surrealism by Tomek Setowski

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 11, 2012
Polish painter Tomek S?towski has one amazing imagination. He is creating what he calls "magical surrealism," aka, a very inventive mind. Endless details, mythical worlds, a sort of never-ending story meets prehistoric meets 3,000 years into the future is what we are getting from the Polish artist's work.

Portraits by Glenn Brown

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
You don't need us to tell you that Northumberland, England-born portrait artist Glenn Brown is extremely talented, and that his portraits look to the neo-classical, Renaissance masters as inspiration and that is broad paint strokes are incredibly intricate and compose an amazing picture. You have eyes for that.

Sci-Fi Surreal Album Covers by Dan McPharlin

Music // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
A few weeks ago, we found an album cover for a Prefuse 73 record that blew our minds, but we couldn't find who the artist was. We just found out that Australian artist Dan McPharlin, who has an eye and hand for some incredible science fiction and surreal landscape works, is the man behind many great album covers.

Pedro Friedeberg "Extravagancias y Pendejadas" @ FIFTY24MX, Mexico City

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Maybe you know Pedro Friedeberg as the man behind the now infamous Hand Chair. But did you know the Mexico City-based Friedeberg, along with Frida Kahlo, were the only two Mexican artists recognized by Andre Breton as part of the Surrealist movement? That makes Friedeberg the last of the Mexican Surrealists, and he opens a new exhibition in Mexico City this week.

Jeff Jordan's inspiration in his surreal scenes comes from ancient Greece, and the creatures (real or surreal) created through out the years.

The Art of Paco Pomet

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 11, 2011
There is just something off here, but in a good way. Paco Pomet's slightly off, eerie scenarios look as if, at times, they could be portraits from a 1950's sci-fi film set, with added bizarre elements. The Granada-born artist does in fact base his paintings off of old photographs, but it is his additions that make them interesting. More after the jump . . .
