Big Eye Art


If there's one physical feature that seems to stand out most in the works a number of Pop Surrealism's artists, it's the eyes. The big-ass eyes. Most famous of the big-eye artists, and possibly the modern creator, is Margaret Keane, who gained notoriety in the 1960s. But today the sub-genre has exploded. Artists as diverse as Mark Ryden, Lisa Petrucci, Gary Baseman, Dave Cooper, and Tim Biskup feature women, men and creatures who clearly go though a ton of Visine.

And now, some of them are collected in a new book called >"Big Eye Art: Resurrected and Transformed" . The book features over 150 images by over 20 artists, and is a great addition to any coffee table. Get it here!
