This 'Prankster Guard' must be up to no good… look at this mischievous smile! @jf_krichbaum describes his work as "Pop Surrealism meets old Masters", and we could not agree more: Surreal (and often slightly bizarre) genre paintings and the artist's painterly expression connect traditional and contemporary, merging into Josef's unique visual language.
If you love Josef’s work as much as we do, you can have a look on the website of @bakerhousegallery and check out the available pieces!

Hyperreal and surreal: @jonodry's drawing 'Sage' gave the artist "a deeper understanding of myself through reassessing old fears and adapting to the uncomfortable process of personal growth." The artist shares further: "The figure offered a small sense of peace during a very difficult time for me and reminded me to trust in the feeling of progress, even if it can't be seen."
@gerard_mas' 'Burnt Idol' is one of three majestic wood sculptures depicting our furry companions on a pedestal. A moment of contemplation: Did you ever wonder what your cats think about when they stand still for a heartbeat?
The story of 'Minotaur' might be one of the most popular stories from Greek mythology, but @paulreidartist's mixed media painting adds a unique perspective. The strength of the beast and the violence this composition exhales intensifies the longer you explore the piece.
The cutest little sunshine to warm your heart! @jasonlimon's 'Ray of Sunshine' is part of the artist's series 'Persona' that was exhibited at @coprogallery in November 2021. Swipe to check out the two other paintings, 'Stay Safe' and 'Persona'... skeletons were never more adorable!
"This series is about blossoming and being bold, standing in your power, going above and beyond one's limits. Once your flowers bloom, there will be all eyes on you. Be proud of who you are and everything you've accomplished on your journey. Embrace your authenticity and let your light shine brighter than ever."
@smwallday's series 'Posy Primary' features three floral beauties: 'Bouquet of inner Beauty', 'Hands of Fluorescence' and 'Garden of Illuminance'. Which piece do you resonate the most with?
