Surrealism isn’t a thing of the future — it has always been present in the past. That’s why Paco Pomet‘s paintings are so glorious. Combining classic imagery from early photographic works with the otherworldly sensibilities of the early 20th century Surrealist movement, Pomet’s work plays with the viewer’s brain as much as it does the eye. It’s a blend of historical context and visual trickery, with hilarious results. Pomet, who lives and works in Grenada, showcases a bizarre sense of humor that manifests itself in each of his oil paintings. His subverted landscapes and portraits often borrow from sepia-toned photographs that look like historical documents or vintage vacation photos.
