Let’s do a couple surrealist fantasy artists, shall we?  We’ll start with Clay Anderson.

Connie Talbot

I don’t usually post videos on here, but I thought I would do something a little different to round out our Little Dreamers series, since today is the last day of the month.  So here are a couple of different YouTube videos of Connie Talbot.  The first is of her performing John Lennon’s ultimate ode to the dreamer, Imagine.  The soundtrack for the clip is, I believe, taken from her studio album, and it has been put to a series of transitioning photos and video clips of Connie.  The second clip is more recent and shows Connie performing Adele’s Rolling in the Deep in the studio.  As you can see there, she’s becoming quite the lovely young lady.  Enjoy!

Ken Rosenthal

I’m posting a couple of photographers tonight that have a kind of dreaminess to their work.  The first is Ken Rosenthal.  In fact, some of these are from a series called A Dream Half Remembered.

Forget to focus + print in black and white = instant art.
OK, yes some of these capture me, they have mystery, a hidden story…but that’s because I too have been programmed to respond to the formula above.
ADHR6 has great composition.

I like the simplicity of them. My favorite is the girl in the mask.

Vladimir Clavijo-Telepnev

I had planned to post on this photographer last month but didn’t get around to it.  Anyway, I think he has a touch of that “dark erotic” aesthetic that informs the work of so many artists today who portray children.  But I’ll let you be the judge.  His photographs are also a nice ode to both ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and the silent film era.

A few of these also appear to make reference to the baroque images of Eva Ionesco by her mother. These are very interesting photos, esp. the last portraits. Thanks for the introduction!

From pipstarr72 on November 26, 2011
No problem, always happy to introduce people to artists and photographers I like. Indeed, I can see the Ionesco influence there as well.

Madvizy

Madvizy is an artist from Iran. Apparently she was banned from DeviantArt. I kinda wish I knew the story behind that. Anyway, I liked this piece.

Just speculating here, but I bet Iran banned Deviant Art from her.
