Chinese artist 'Tik Ka' creates whimsical baby paintings that show a surreal perspective into the artist's interpretation of childhood. The images reveal the use of watercolor effects and bright colors.

All of the baby paintings show a newborn with a cartoon facial expression. Featuring oversized eyes and large heads, these images show a cute recreation of what newborns actually look like. The expressions are specifically created to convey a message of unspoken empathy and gentleness. The subjects in the paintings appear to be floating, as if they are still consumed inside a mother's womb.

The paintings also show how the artist has combined "Chinese characteristics with Western elements and Japanese superflat technique." These whimsical paintings reveal the lovable innocence of childhood.
