Passaros Urbanos / The Loneliness - Book Cover by Dimitri Kozma

This is the history of this new book cover.

I've made this art in 1999 just as a quick draw in graffiti on paper. It's a series of 4 images with the same idea, the loneliness in the middle of a crowd.

In 2010, Wagno Lima, a Brazilian writer want to use this image as his book cover, called "Passaros Urbanos" (Urban Birds), and I've made the finished version for the cover.

To create the final artwork, I made in digital format, using Adobe Photoshop.After the finish artwork, I've worked on cover design, with logo and crop to apply the concept.

Cross Eye 3D Stereo Images - First Test

I've made some quick tests to create 3D Pictures. And you don't need any 3D glasses to see the effect, you just need to concentrate and cross your eyes.

The pictures was taken very quick, just to test the effect for the first time. And it works nice! The next time I will create some better pictures to worth the 3D treatment. :-)

How can you see the 3D effect...

While starring at the middle of the two images cross your eyes. If you can't cross your eyes (looking down at your nose to try to cross your eyes won't work) you can't see the effect.

Simple instructions: Cross your eyes, relax your vision until there are three images, then focus on the center image. The further back you are from the screen, easier it becomes.

To better results, click on the image to enlarge and only see the image on screen.

The Guardian of Unconsciousness - Surreal Painting by Dimitri Kozma

You can call this iconic image as "The Guardian of Unconsciousness" or "The Goddess Of All Ideas" or "The Goddess of Unconsciousness" or "The Guardian of Surreality" or "Embodiment of Creativity" or "The Dream Guardian" or "The Lamp Woman" or "The Light Woman" or whatever you like to call.

SHE is my most iconic surreal symbol and I'm dare to say SHE is one of the most important symbols of surrealism. The Goddess Of All Ideas, the real meaning of surreality and hidden desires.

Her first appearance was on my game about surrealism, "Surrealidade" (Surreality) made in 1999 and after SHE was on my short movie "Entre Espelhos e Sombras" (Between Mirrors and Shadows) in 2007, including a sculpture in tribute.

Now I've made another tribute to the Goddess of Unconsciousness with this new painting. All digital made with tablet.

The naked woman with a light bulb as her head crucified in a cactus is the symbol of creativity. SHE is the guardian of the realm of ideas and represent the surrealism in his pure essence.

The Gold Brain - Surreal Painting by Dimitri Kozma

This is my surrealist painting called "The Gold Brain", with a unique visual style and different levels of interpretation.

As always, I don't like to explain my surrealistic paintings, because the viewer should have your own personal interpretation and feelings about the image.

I've created the psychic automatism with paper and graffiti and finish the artwork as digital painting.

There's many hidden symbols inside the art. I'd like to know if you can find some of that hidden stuff. :-)

This is an alternative version with different colors, but I like more the first one, I think was much more dramatic.
