I looked at a whole dump truck load of old-school surrealism today before I came across something worth posting. (And this guy is definitely worth posting.)
What do I mean by old-school surrealism? The hand-painted collage of distorted and unrelated common objects, usually placed on a barren, cheap-ass landscape with perspective ripped from "Painting For Dummies".
"Oh, look! She’s holding a blue flamingo and she has two mouths!"
Inspiration and admiration are one thing. But buying Dali’s pants on eBay and trying to ape his style is quite another. If you can’t be even moderately original, either hide your paintings till you learn or take up professional bowling.
Eric White: Extremely original. Shouldn’t hide his paintings. Doesn’t bowl.
