      Very, very cool stuff. I am a major fan of Jacek Yerka and surreal painting. I was thinking about starting a thread on surreal paintings because of their relevance to the dream world.

      I love the first one.

      Anything made by Escher is a classic.

      I DON'T KNOW! I've been looking for them. They're awesome, and I think that his collections on Amazon are gonna be the first coffee-table/art book that I'm ever gonna buy.

      Yeah, it's my favorite too. I think it has to do with something about the bonfires and the huge wooden structure .

      I have a book of a lot of Yerka's paintings, and the surreal writer Harlan Ellison has a very short surreal story written to illustrate each painting. It is called Mind Fields.

      Those are really cool. I like the bed on the railroad tracks and the water-maze one with the swans. I liked them all but I stopped for a long time on those so I guess I like them better.

      I remember Roger Dean, the Yes album cover guy--he had some really cool paintings. They don't seem to show up good on the computer tho; I looked at some and they looked better on the albums, it seems like.

      Surreal art is the coolest kind because it is like photorealism of something that doesn't exist.

      Thanks for posting this; I had never seen his stuff.

      I think we should keep the surreal art topic alive on this site because of its theme of dream imagery. These are videos of paintings by three of my favorite artists, and all three are surreal artists.

      Rene Magritte:

      Georgio De Chirico:

      Once the camera was invented, Surrealism became the only valid form of realism (in painting) as far as I'm concerned.

      Let's immortalize this thread. I think maybe even Dream Views should have a Surreal Art forum. The paintings in this thread make me want to have lucid dreams where I go to the represented worlds.
