The art of Dan May

I first came across this great artist in a pop surrealism magazine. Dan spends his days (and nights) painting dreamlike environments that transcend space and time. These delightfully haunting images are often based in personal observations of both human’s and nature’s relationships with each other. His artwork has been exhibited in galleries throughout the US and abroad.

I love his drawings especially. The delicate, lovingly drawn characters evoke emotions deeper than just whimsy and intrigue. They are genuinely beautiful in their own right, and the cross between imaginary doodlings and wonderfully silverpoint drawings by the old masters is a really magical, dream-like combination. I think these are superior to his Dali-esque landscapes, even though those are pretty freakin cool too!
