Stunning Surrealism by Eric Fortune (15 total) If someone could look into our dreams and paint what they see, I'm sure that would be artist Eric Fortune. Creating beautiful worlds using acrylic on watercolor paper, Fortune has his heroes and heroines jumping off bridges and wading through murky water. Look closely at some of his paintings and you'll even notice something slightly off - sliced body parts.

In fact, Fortune's mysterious paintings are filled with stories about our relationship within ourselves and between others.

Rafal Olbinski What Others are Saying: Known for his lyrical surrealistic imagery in Poland, where surrealism is not merely an artistic conceit but a visual language, Olbinski has imbued his work with a distinct metaphoric structure while at the same time his paintings exhibit the representational virtuosity of the nineteenth century American painters Thomas Eakins and Robert Henri.
