i love it :D
Lisa Frank inspired art.Look her up, her art was iconic in the 90s but irl she's an absolute nutcase.
>>440850The color pallete is Lisa Frank, the dreamy overpopulated ocean tableau with above/below sea level viewing perspective thing was popularized by Robert Wyland aka "Wyland" beginning in the 80s and mercilessly ripped off and made kitschier and kitschier both by copyists and eventually by him to compete with the imitators . It's a meme now but the original Wyland murals are pretty cool because they're at life size scale and not so ridiculously crammed with sealife.
>>440857The more commercial Wyland typical style/subject that the OPs image is a shameless copy of
>>440757it's called "90's T-shirt shop by the Beach" style.
Shockingly enough, this is "children's jigsaw puzzle"As the filename says, it is the "Paradise Cove Puzzle"This is the 1980's forerunner to psychedelic rave artWikipedia claims the work of John C. Lilly inspired "Ecco the Dolphin" and the artistic inspiration for Chuck Person's Eccojams is clear(In fact, we can look to William James' "The Varieties of Religious Experience" for guidance.)these are grand, palatial, beatific visions of harmonyYou could call this "grand ensemble"https://soundcloud.com/anythingbotThere are links to surrealism, but I don't think that's primary; rather, this is a Theosophical expression that is neither surreal nor transcendental outside of a "bureaucratic social transcendence" of Max Weber's "Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism"It's a bit arresting to see this in the context of- racial hierarchy- social transcendencebecause this seems to strip it of its sensuality and force it into a brutalist realist straightjacketHowever, you cannot discount the power of this work to compromise Western racial hegemony with what is, at the end of the day, communist brutalist accessibility and lyricismSo it's a children's jigsaw puzzle at two levels: first at the physical level, and at the mental level, preparing you for pax imperia, whatever peace was established when the British empire decided to give up, whatever attitudes towards racial dominance were inherited when the British gave up the Great Game
reminds me of the art for devin townsend's album, empath
Looks like the kind of art you'd see on the front cover of a high school biology textbook.
>>440856this high detail pixel art always impresses me

Why was Y2K so fascinated by sea life, specially whales and dolphins?
>>440900I feel like when we get older we 'look' less and gloss over stuff more. I remember being vividly intrigued by art like this when I was younger, thinking the world was this interesting and full of fantasy. Adult life gets dull quick.
>>444570Don't know but I had a dream of Donkey Kong Country as a kid except it was a dock/water level with dolphins and whales so it was probably onto something.>>444780Good point. Love pictures with tons of detail that you can look over and contemplate for years. That may not be the best example, but the point still stands.
