51 Surreal Pieces of Art & Photography

From Humanimal Artistry to New Age Psychedelia

— October 14, 2009 — Art & Design

Without such an extreme sense of imagination, the world would be in danger of becoming a monotonous hole filled with middling individuals and passable creations. Enjoy this cluster of surreal art and photography and appreciate the extraordinary abnormalities that exist in some artists’ minds. Maybe you’ll even be inspired to create your own surreal world.
