This collection of surreal painted ceramics is thought-provoking, but not necessarily in the way people might expect. The bizarre images and shapes have people scratching their heads in an attempt to understand the inspiration behind each creation. From white men painted on a sculpture of a black man's face to the abstract form of an alien body painted over with three other characters, these surreal painted ceramics are utterly fantastical.

Created by Sergei Isupov, the surreal painted ceramics is essentially full of imaginative narrative. The artist writes, "My work portrays characters placed in situations that are drawn from my imagination but based on my life experiences. My art works capture a composite of fleeting moments, hand gestures, eye movements that follow and reveal the sentiments expressed."
