These Met Hatzeil surreal sketches are confusingly creative and radiate with vibrant colors. These sketches showcase a variety of different subject matters, from a demonic Mickey Mouse lookalike and Victorian-dressed gentlemen to seductively suggestive damsels and multiple long-necked individuals.
Hatzeil combines in each of his surrealist portrayals an interesting balance of stereotypical street art materials and more fine arts-based products. For instance, in some of his paintings spray paint and oil paints appear. This contrast in materials adds more depth and allure to his surrealist works. All of the paintings incorporate confusing and chaotic backgrounds, none of which are ever explained to the viewer. It is up to the audience to determine what is taking place in these fantastically flustered paintings.
