Even a cursory glance at Benjamin Thomas Rawson's portfolio is like viewing a portal into another world. His artwork features a skillful mix of fantastical elements with a clear affinity for architecture. Benjamin Thomas Rawson's mixed-media creations blend color, personality and the absurd with disarming clarity.

Some of Benjamin Thomas Rawson's illustrations feature oddities like a tower of basketballs topped with a moonlike object as they balance against a ladder, while others include a complex architectural masterpiece that showcases a treehouse, a chimneylike space filled with water and a small pool. Some images are heavy on the color, while others use no color at all. One thing each image has in common is an impressively detailed and layered image that showcases the ability of well-done surrealist art to be simultaneously accessible and confounding.
