Fred Tomaselli is an American artist, best known for doing highly detailed paintings and collages on wooden panels. Works that I posted above and many of his other art works are very eye catching and gives you that hallucinating feeling. Just like the artist said, it really does seduce and transport the viewer in to space of the artwork while it simultaneously revealing the mechanics of that seduction.


  1. These are pretty amazing in person. I recommend at least checking out a detail shot of one.

  2. I really like the colors and the shapes this artist used. The collages look like pictures from another whole world. The artists pieces looks very imaginative and mystic. He made simple items such as a raven and a field worker into something beautiful.
