Psychedelic Meets Extraterrestrial: hedreamtmars, Double Tapped
Surfacing on our IG feed today is @hedreamtmars, an artist whose paintings harmonize the psychedelic and the extraterrestrial—think The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine album cover, throw it in space, subtract some of the chaos, and dim the colors.
His darkly, anatomically-bizarre creatures could be frightening, except they also remind me of the comfort and security of flipping through the pages of a children’s picture book (perhaps it’s the frequent use of heavy, sleepy eyes?). Even the five-fingered, one-eyed callback to Frankenstein’s monster—accentuated by the F for Frankenstein’s construction of the fingers—is sublime in that it’s just as terrifying as it is beautiful.
