Many artists are inviting people to jump into their own wonderlands through the genre of pop surrealism. Five in particular are reinvigorating this art form to the delight of many contemporaries who appreciate paintings and illustrations for different reasons. Highlighted by Beautiful Decay, Casey Weldon, Mac Sorro, Rafael Silveira, Leslie Ditto and Britt Ehringer all delve into otherworldly scenarios that pop surrealism feeds off of.
Today's pop surrealism tends to incorporate "a pervasive sense of childlike fantasy," observes Beautiful Decay, "ushers in a sense of mythical innocence and humor, unifying the superficial world of popular culture with the recesses of the unconscious." Creatively cathartic and inspiring, the artworks encourage people to tap into their inner child for strange moments of clarity.
