Michael Beitz Artwork Inspires Reactions of Shock and Awe

As I look through Michael Beitz's stunning surreal sculptures, I can't help but think of a magic spell gone awry. From walls that actually have ears to warped tables and mangled trees, each piece looks like a failed spell attempt at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Based in New York City, Michael Beitz has a wild imagination and a talent to back it up. By pushing the limits of traditional sculptures, his work really does belong in the modern world where shock and awe is prided over almost anything and everything else.

Michael Beitz is currently John Michael Kohler Art Center Residency in Kohler, Wisconsin and will join artist Larry Bob Phillips in July for a project at Recess Space in New York. Stats for Disturbingly Surreal Sculptures Trending: Older & Mild
