There is another world, but it is in this one.

It takes a clear understanding of reality to make compelling fantasy. The most charming and ingenious images come from tweaked realities: some physics, new creatures mimicking human qualities, a library of real-life stories shot with fantasy. Mashups are the best part of the mind. Art is a great way for us to re-imagine and decipher the world. Have arresting, otherworldly artworks handy — they’ll make us take playfulness back down from the shelves and help us stay passionately curious.

Here are the stars I promised you.

carlsagan

The stars remind us that we are all connected, there’s nothing more romantic than that. Gazing at the sky on a cold night can make even the most hardened city-dweller misty in the eyes. Art is the envoy for the wisdom of space and the beauty of the stars. The earth is a tiny stage in a majestic cosmic arena, sometimes tragic, but how noble and redeeming it is to live here. Art about space makes us feel small in the presence of something greater than ourselves, it prompts us to be more calm, more cooperative, more altruistic.

Turn up the dial on happy and crazy: Alba Blázquez from Madrid

Imagination is the highest form of research! Alba Blázquez is a young artist, illustrator with a potent and magnetic imagination. Her playful imagery is rooted in satire and social comedy, sounding off the turmoils of city life: the humor, bewilderment and sometimes ridiculousness of urban lifestyles. Real life contains its inevitable lousy bits, but the only way through the heartaches, tribulations and loneliness is to endure it with an upbeat tone (and pizza). Her work is invigorating, high-powered and infectiously happy! We love the constant galactic imagery, it brings to our attention that no matter how dark, the galaxy outshines our problems on Earth.

Alba started her career as a photographer but quickly discovered that illustration is a quicker and surefire way of documenting the curious and bustling happenings in her mind.

What a fantastic, wild and curious imagination! The world belongs to the energetic. Turn the dial up on happy and crazy!

Wise, amusing and delightfully eccentric: Sasha Baranovskya from Russia.

Sasha Baranovskaya makes charming, amusing and sensible images about our generation. Her work is odd, whimsical and delightfully eccentric. They’re rooted in the absurdity of daily life with incisive observations: from ailing demons roaming the neighborhood, to the proverbial corporate ladder. In Fashionists she takes a witty crack at our obsession with appearance. Pink Planet is an inter-dimensional space exploration adventure…fantastic! We’re super excited to see comics as a mature art form, booming in popularity and geared towards an intellectual, fun-loving audience.
