  4. webaddicty on February 5th, 2010 at 7:42 am

    Very conceptual and complicated artworks! my vote for speciall “Idee Fixe” & “love”

  5. Jordan Walker on February 5th, 2010 at 7:42 am

    those are some pretty heavy drawings. I think a walk to Starbucks will cheer me up!

    Outstanding concepts.

  8. JC on February 5th, 2010 at 10:03 am

  9. Joe Barstow on February 5th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Great collection! I never thought I would say this, but I’m liking the photo-manipulated work better. It feels as if surrealists finally found the right set of tools :)

    Thanks for this post

  10. Brandi on February 5th, 2010 at 11:19 am

    very awesome, and grotesque at the same time!

  11. Firefly on February 5th, 2010 at 12:01 pm

    How absolutely strange! I Stumbled across this page -which I thoroughly enjoyed by the way- to find the album artwork for the band I’m currently listening to. “Holding Back the Flood” is the cover for Grand Unification by Fightstar :) Brilliant.

  12. pixiejones506 on February 5th, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    I would really love to see these in the environment that the artists prefer. Wild stuff, need to see it in a more concrete way.

  13. Rapid on February 5th, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    This is amazing, it’s staggering. I like it. Especially the picture in black and white.

  14. Ns on February 5th, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    My vote for “Holding back the Flood”, it is really very conceptual!

  15. Abdul on February 5th, 2010 at 11:51 pm

    its really interesting and beautiful

    I’ve always admired and been fascinated by surreal art–as well as disturbed. (Which I believe is the point!)

    You’ve assembled a solid collection. My preference is with traditionally executed media. The superb draftsmanship of “Attention whore” makes the piece even more compelling. The strokes evoke anger and frustration almost more than the actual imagery.

  17. Pusparaj on February 6th, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    Really nice collection.

  18. Webtoolfeed on February 6th, 2010 at 3:43 pm

    These are amazing……and kinda scary.
    Thanks for sharing!

  19. Begool on February 11th, 2010 at 5:42 am

    Wonderfull image…

  20. James on February 11th, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    WOW! Great list “Linking Meditation” really creeps me out.

  21. BestofStumbleupon on February 16th, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Nice collection. :D

  22. pcd2k on March 7th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    “Arrested Expansion or Cardiac Arrest” very indicative of Dali works but really thought provoking, nevertheless.

  23. Valerie on March 12th, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    The art work was amazing!

  24. lea on May 20th, 2010 at 10:36 am

    This is not surreal art is Gothic art.

  25. 2experts on November 24th, 2010 at 6:50 am

  26. Claire on April 20th, 2011 at 9:37 pm
