Even in the darkest parts of our mind could we ever come up with the intriguing and wonderful photography of Laurence Demaison. The French photographer and fine artist combines black and white photos with his own drawing and effected layers on top of the image, adding a ghostly dimension to the finished product.

We have seen the works of Michael Page over the years at Copro Gallery and Shooting Gallery, but this year we have become increasingly impressed by the works of the San Francisco-based painter. Each work is acrylic and oil on canvas, each one appearing to be a discovery of a distant universe or surreal dream brought to canvas.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
