These phenomenal surrealist paintings by Grenadian artist Paco Pomett were inspired by vintage photos. Pomett has given these photos an interesting update, adding twisted and unusual elements to these already intriguing vintage shots.

Some of these surreal paintings feature animal faces where there were once human faces, adding an interesting and bizarre aspect to these works. The personified animals in these paintings include alligators and sea lions. One of these fantastic works even incorporates the Cookie Monster, who seems to be frantically driving a car full of gun-totting soldiers. Cookie Monster seems a little out of place in this setting, but changes the mood of the painting.

These paintings also depict extremely twisted limbs among other things. Pomett has a talent for injecting new and interesting life into old vintage images. Stats for Vintage-Inspired Surrealist Art Trending: Older & Mild
