Digital Paintings by Alex Andreyev 

Artist Alex Andreyev works and lives in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. His incredibly surreal paintings of floating people and objects are digitally painted using Photoshop and Corel. The first thing I thought when discovering this series was that this man needs to animate a movie, and sure enough on his website he mentions that he’s currently working on an animation project called Kin-Dza-Dza. Yes!

Abstract Apocalypse: The Paintings of Konstantin Batynkov 

This weekend while looking through a couple dozen Russian art gallery web sites (isn’t that how you spend your weekend?) I discovered these truly surreal paintings by Moscow-based Konstantin Batynkov. I urge you to click on his works to view them larger, as it’s difficult to discern exactly what’s happening in the frenzied brush strokes of each painting. Helicopters and skydivers dot the sky like the black plumes of anti-aircraft fire, while dinosaurs and knights on horseback joust on the horizon. Flying submarines, hovering trains of semi-trailer trucks, everything quixotic and anarchistic all at once. Really amazing stuff.
