The surreal black-and-white landscapes of Kasia Derwinska

Polish artist, Kasia Derwinska creates surreal, monochromatic images using a blend of photography and digital retouching. Her dark and haunting landscapes surround us with feelings of melancholy and loneliness. But rather than drown us in despair, the works present a touching sort of transcendental beauty.Kasia-Derwinska-1Derwinska doesn’t describe herself as a photographer. Instead, she considers photography to be just one of the tools she employs in order to express her thoughts and memories. Of her inspiration, she says: “In addition to my experiences, my creations are inspired by night dreams as since childhood I remember most of them and I believe that dreams are the most symbolic language of our subconscious, a guide to navigate in the modern world.” [h/t http://inagblog.com] Kasia-Derwinska-2 Kasia-Derwinska-3 Kasia-Derwinska-4 Kasia-Derwinska-5 Kasia-Derwinska-6 Kasia-Derwinska-7 Kasia-Derwinska-8

Massive 9-Story Mural Painted During 11 Days of Snow in Russia

Russian street artist Rustam Qbic recently spent 11 days braving the cold winter weather in Nizhny, Russia completing this piece entitled ‘Blossom.’

The surreal mural features three characters deeply engrossed by their books who have begun flowering. Here, Rustam reminds his viewers of the importance of knowledge and education, and the positive impact it has on a person’s mind.

The 9-story mural uses soft, deep natural colors which work well with its surroundings. It’s just enough to brighten the area up without appearing out of place. Take a look below.

Street Artist Phlegm Paints Massive Surreal Mural in New Zealand

Street artist Phlegm flew to New Zealand and shook off his jet lag just in time to complete his surreal mural ‘Songbird Pipe Organ’ for the 2014 Dunedin Street Art Festival.

The fantastic, massive piece takes us to a bizarre world where an organ player plays away at his instrument, which emits a sea of colorful birds from the pipes. The color contrast is quite nice here, with the birds seeming to portray the beauty of music emerging from this monochrome world.

If you’re interested in seeing the mural in person, it appears on the Dunedin Musicians Club on Manse St. See more from the artist by visiting his blog.
