Magical Realism in Paintings by Michael Parkes

You probably have seen a lot of awesome surreal paintings, but today I want to show you something special – the works by the world’s most popular magical realist. Perhaps, you have guessed the name of the person we are going to talk about. Yeah, he is Michael Parkes, a well-known painter, a sculptor, and a stone lithographer. His metaphysical and spiritual works evoke your imagination and invite you to the dream world. The fascinating atmosphere of these pieces of art is really magnetizing. As the artist says, he depicts in his paintings something more than the average person can see. People always miss something in the everyday life, ‘cause each of us perceives the world around from the subjective point of view. The works from Michael Parkes’ gallery with their philosophical and mythological tone open the gates to the other realms. In this post you can find the most wonderful artworks by Michael Parkes and I offer you to enjoy them together.
