What happens when snakes take over a plane? Pretty bad things. But when snakes take over classic art, we get some pretty cool work that’s a little bit ssscary and a whole lot awesome.
Salvador Dalí was best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work, but did you know he was also the author of something as practical and down-to-earth as a cookbook? Published in 1973, it’s a big, gold cookbook with very old-school classic recipes, like lobsters glazed in aspic. Add a healthy dose of his signature surrealism via some intensely erotic paintings and you’ll get an idea why this is such a collector’s item.
Stephen Tompkins makes some impressive Lichtenstein-esque paintings that look like Dali comic books. He is also a prolific experimental musician who makes dark, ambient sound collages and minimalist, beat-driven compositions.
