The surreal landscape paintings of Joseba Eskubi will take people's breath away. Full of mystery, the images take on abstract forms that encourage the viewer to fill in the blanks themselves. This allows them to connect on a deeper level to each work of art. While most people are bound to see organic structures and plant life, others may see strange aliens and impending storms.

At once dark and bright, the surreal landscape paintings are full of tension. Giving the rich colors a sense of context, Beautiful Decay writes that many of the structures do appear desolate and futuristic. As written on the blog, "It’s an uncertain, post-apocalyptic shelter. But unlike the stereotypical gray landscape, Eskubi has created a place of visual splendor." Of course, that is only one person's interpretation.
