Surrealist paintings of dystopian worlds by Michael Kerbow

Michael Kerbow is a multimedia artist based in San Francisco, California. His works include paintings, assemblages, drawings, and digital photography. Kerbow captures the current zeitgeist to depict and warn us about the potential and terrific consequences of our behaviors and choices, such as consumption and environment degradation, that may generate a dystopian future.

“My work explores the way in which we engage with our surroundings and the possible consequences our actions have upon the world in which we live. Through my work I attempt to question the rationale of our choices, and try to reveal the dichotomy that may exist between what we desire and what we manifest. Recently my work has focused upon the mechanisms that power our society and examines how they may influence the construct for a possible future.” – Michael Kerbow.
