Depicting wild realism using a realistic approach, Joel Rea's surreal oil painting series beautifully mediate these two opposing styles to create stunning artwork that highlights the greatest aspects of both techniques.

The contemporary surrealist painter renders his images in a hyper-realistic way to present his audience with artwork that is as detailed as a photograph -- his art is also special because of its vivid pulsating energy and its detailed portrayal of human emotion. The Australia-based artist contrasts lifelike visuals of dramatic landscapes with otherworldly concepts that are sure to both surprise and delight you.

In his latest collection of surreal oil painting series, Rea combines realism with the impossible to confuse and excite the audience and prove that there is no way to rationalize art.
