Staring at these Adam Friedman illustrations of psychedelic landscapes may have you believing there is something wrong with your eyes. After all, the colors, the shapes and the sheer impossibility of the images he presents will no doubt overwhelm your ocular senses. But after you get past your initial visual shock, you realize that Friedman’s paintings are explorations of Earth as a being and how it goes through changes that humans will not likely witness within a singular lifetime.

Adam Friedman renders each of these surreal images using acrylic paint on canvases, which is quite an impressive feat since the realism in his illustrations would suggest that he painted these images with the aid of digital technologies. His depictions of molten lava are near photorealistic.
