Animals play a big part in fantasies and tales. Australian artist Joel Rea captures the sense of wonder animals provide in his latest surreal paintings. In his solo exhibition, Beasts of Arcadia, Rea creates a fascinating world with a series of paintings which combine nature, man, and the animal kingdom.

The beautiful paintings provide a unique sense of confrontation between the three. Powerful in its meaning, Beasts of Arcadia also provokes a variety of emotions in the viewer.

Check out some of the paintings from Rea’s latest below and head on over to his website for more spectacular work.
