The surrealist paintings by New York-based artist Stephen Hall are a bright celebration of cultures. Mixing pop culture with stereotypical images and symbols of various countries from around the globe, Hall uses a style of art called Neo Pop Surrealism.

Hall assures that his art was created without the help of technology or any other kind of sophisticated art technique. Hall first draws the patterns on a cardboard template, and then he hand paints the rest of the figure employing acrylics. He explains how he achieves the extraordinary bright tonality found his art work, "The subjects and ambiguous light sources are hand painted rows and rows of acrylic colors or tones, going from dark to light in countless layers."

Bold and vibrant, each mesmerizing painting by Stephen Hall can take around four weeks or more to be completed.
