Hiro Sugiyama's Work is Off-Beat and Hilarious

Hiro Sugiyama's strangely surreal artwork is a perfect fit for Colette's, a Paris store that collects and displays the curious and the unconventional. His latest series, which is on display there until August 30th, is titled 'Outside of Science.'

Sugiyama's images are the type that deserve a second look. They include stuff like a tiny little man crawling up a woman's face as though it's Mount Everest, people dressed in cheeky chaps or a horse's head on a human body.

These strange visual narratives come to life in Sugiyama's work, though they might warrant a head-scratch or two. Perhaps not completely understanding them is the best part about them: you can simply revel in the weirdness without giving in to our general tendency to over-analyze.
