Welcome to the art of Daftpixel! We are the NEXT generation of surreal art and metaphorical landscapes. This new series by the artist is titled “Dualisee”, the art of seeing double or two worlds at once. These hyper-detailed masterpieces and massive 3 point perspectives are developing slowly and methodically for you to enjoy! So much in the works the anticipation is intense. Needless to say the next few years are going to be BIG!
UPDATE 6/04/2013: Thanks for all your support for this new series. This summer is already going splendidly. Currently moving to my new studio and getting ready to paint again. “Killing Time” and “Flower Glass” at the bottom of this page are the next editions to print. Also we are currently working on elaborate commentary about all the characters and meaning behind each painting so you will have a direct connection to what the artist was thinking in their imagery. Expect those by the end of June.
Also we will be offering framed prints of everything here at our online store and shipped to your door. Maybe will open up shipping to Outside the US as Well. Thanks and Keep collecting ART!
“A-Muse” by Chris Elliman 24″x 32″ . This original creation is the third piece in the series. Minimal test marketing has been realized with this one so we are WAY excited to see what you think. This piece is a tale of a child’s first look into amusement, growing up through the different ages of entertainment, cinema, and graduating to full blown burning man at the end. All the rides, games, thrills, chills and spills of life as a fun seeker. Every corner is bursting with color, drama, and well some terror too! Of course like all our pieces you have to take them home to see everything, you won’t catch it on a laptop or smart phone viewing that is for sure. We purposefully disallow full resolution online so you just get a taste here, sorry the whole ride awaits just click buy now and get ready for the ride of a lifetime!. Over 6 weeks of rendering time with a traditional airbrush on canvas and digitally remastered. An amusement park full of surprises. Digitally printed on poster stock.
The mother of all the series and destined to be a classic. Cities living in faces. Over three months just to paint the black and white version! Now two more weeks of introducing color to a classic! Nothing can trump the black and white purity that is the original edition but we get it, some of you just don’t go there, you need color in your life, so this one is for you. This glowing rendition is TF 2.0, a new edition and changes added! We won’t keep releasing the same image ever. Can you tell what is different? 1000 of these are printed and then after that we will change it up to be considered a new edition and that much more collectible.
Each panel is 24″ x 24″, fresh digital print on quality poster stock. These prints are second generation proofs of this image. Many subtle changes have been added that insure this is a different edition of the classic and will be treated like another run of editions. Only 1000 pieces worldwide will be distributed in this unique run.

This piece was test marketed as a full scale drawing at many festivals and special events with outstanding review. Just based on the drawing we could tell this would be a new favorite even rivaling the incredible affinity for “Two Faces”. Well here she is fully rendered in airbrush and a two tone color proof. This is the second piece in the new series that is going for the throats of all other illustrative art out there. This piece had to be the one that says we are not just a one hit wonder and we are the machine that is bringing 30+ masterworks over the next 3 years. This color edition is an homage to “Two Faces” in the purity of black and white but giving you a taste of what she wants to be, FULL BLAZING COLOR. Next summer we will release the technicolor wonderment. This summer is this this serene dreamlike soft blues and sepia tones.. ENJOY! 24″ x 32″

“Wine…Oh!” (coming soon)
“Wine..OH!” Our first Full digital painting to be released. Got to try it right? SO many of you just aren’t ready to show off your wild side with the hyper-detail but still enjoy the hidden stories and images. Yes this is a classic wine still life but this one has much more of a life. It is a giant abstract portrait of the vintner himself. A profile shot. Do you see him? It’s not small…. imagine the napkin as his bow tie and maybe that will help. Can’t wait to release this one next week and really see what you see.
In all it’s glory this hyper-detailed masterpiece hit the art world hard and raw. Part of the diptych ( two panels that work together or apart). A man, a landscape, a city, a working community with plenty of sports, drama and surprises. So much built into this image it will take you years to release all of it’s secrets.

This is truly the mother of the whole series. The amount of love this girl has is beyond words. Truly the original muse in my life. The dancer, the role model, the city. She brings me joy to this day and or course she is a classic and now will never be forgotten. Built as a stand alone painting and part of the diptych known as “Two Faces.” Over 500 hours of production to complete both. Available now.

This is a 25′ wide mural commissioned by a prominent shop owner in the Bay Area. It was so well received we just couldn’t keep it to just his location. We had this beauty shot with a medium format camera, tiled to perfection, and digitally remastered to bring it to you! The color and intensity is lovely and lot’s of hidden stories as well. Just like all our pieces , plenty of contrast and harmony! Shipping now!
