Paul Lehr

Paintings by Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is one of the greatest future-fantasist painters of the post-pulp era. He was very prolific and produced a large body of work of remarkable intensity and consistent high quality. In the late-80s and 90s, after paperback publishers had lost interest in putting beautifully weird covers on their books, Lehr turned his attention to painting epic and highly detailed dream landscapes.

Andy Kehoe

Forest Monster Paintings by Andy Kehoe

Andy Kehoe, a graduate of Parsons School of Design, paints works that depict themes that are dark in nature, yet are elevated above being frightening by the use of playful humor or a dreamy, fairytale like quality.
The otherwordly landscapes and nature-spirit denizens that populate Kehoe’s work open up an even deeper portal to Kehoe’s world, one that contains a similar magic and enigmatic mystery as that of Hayao Miyazaki.

Christian Schloe

Digital Artwork by Christian Schloe

These surreal scenes by Christian Schloe feature bizarre moments that draw viewers out of a concrete reality and into a dreamy, fictional world. In his work, the digital artist creates expressive visual stories filled with soft color palettes, elegant birds and butterflies, soft flower petals, and otherworldly, majestic landscapes. The illusion of a scratched canvas and worn, aged edges allude to a different time and place where a howling wolf is half human, half animal; a couple dances among the clouds; and a young girl collects drops of moonlight in a bowl.

Each beautifully designed composition is a whimsical fantasy concocted by the talented artist. Schloe playfully blends realistic elements with perplexing, conceptual ideas. In doing so, he creates the illusion of serenity within a strange and confusing composition. Though he may have significant meaning behind his work, the artist leaves no clues to an explanation. Viewers are left to venture out on our own journey, interpreting the intriguing illustrations with endless possibilities to the narratives that we might dream up.
