French photographer Thomas Subtil in his series “hakuna matata” – a Swahili phrase which means “no worries” – takes animals native to Africa and anthropomorphizes them, revealing us the secret lives of wild animals. The unusual snaps were made from photographs Subtil took whilst visiting Kenya. He later edited them to make them a little more unusual and surreal. We’ve never seen animals do this before… perhaps they only do it when nobody is around?
Photographer and digital mixed-media artist Vineet Radhakrishnan from India, mostly doing portraiture and fashion shoots in Paris. His latest series inspired by the works of René Magritte is called the “Surreal Project” – creative photomanupulations with bits of digital painting thrown in.
Artist David Niles has taken his son’s interests and produced them in delightfully spectral, vintage style photos that illustrate a small boy’s place in his own imagination.
These are photographs of my son, pictured in a world of fantasy and imagination. A world that children occupy a good deal of the time. They are my interpretation of his world.
Postcards from the Future by Italian digital artist Francesco Romoli.
What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we can’t decipher. What we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. There is only the inevitable.
Amy Guidry is a Louisiana-based artist and currently resides in Lafayette. Amy uses acrylic on canvas to create surreal narrative images. Her paintings explore the connections between different life forms and the cycle of life through a vivid and really captivating way.
My work stems from two loves – Psychology and Art. With Surrealism being the grand marriage of the two, I was naturally drawn to every aspect behind the movement. Using images conceived from dreams and free association that I catalog in several sketchbooks, I stitch together whole series from countless thumbnail sketches. Themes I explore involve the human psyche – who we are and how we interact with each other, including our relationship with other animals and the natural world.
