Novel Canvas Paintings
Russell Cobb Revamps Book Cover Designs with Surreal Imagery

By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Mar 4, 13

Using old book cover designs as his starting point, painter Russell Cobb creates surrealistic scenes and imagery with bright pigmentation and bizarre characters.

The artist is giving worn out books, that were once full of intrigue and promise, a new life as exciting canvases for his fantastical artwork. Books have a life of their own, each one working as a portal to a different time and place, transporting readers into the depths of their imaginations, imparting knowledge and experiences we may not have otherwise discovered. This makes them the perfect material to use for imaginative and creative works of art that can’t be contained on paper alone.

Russell Cobb reinvigorates book cover designs, alluding to the wonders and surprises held within.
