I saw a pair of amazing paintings in San Jose, CA, around 2007. They were called "Heaven" and "Hell", and each showed a very detailed fantasy cityscape on a hill, covered in freeways. [more inside]
ArtFilter: I'm trying to figure out who created a number of surrealist images. I remember inversion/fusion of right-side-up and up-side-down things as the main theme, with a lot of castle-islands, boats sailing through the sky, etc. Along the lines of this image. [more inside]

I'm looking for a specific series of paintings (watercolors?) depicting characters from a hodgepodge of recent popular movies - Juno, Pacific Rim, Fargo, Hot Fuzz, Monsters University, Casino Royale, among others. Low detail, no background - mainly just characters on a beige/brown background. [more inside]
I've been searching for a series of recent paintings (I think they're paintings, but I can't be sure) to no avail. Here's what I remember: they're of well-dressed women who are peeling back their skin to reveal viscera. I recall that they're by a Spanish artist and they're fairly recent. Please help me hivemind, all my google searches are coming up empty.
Hi yall! I got this painting about 12 years ago in Baltimore as a gift. Who painted it? [more inside]
Ten or twelve years ago I saw a series of paintings I really liked at the Denver Art Museum. The paintings featured idyllic farm-like scenery under bright blue skies with white clouds. Distinctly the sky made up 80% of the image, so the ground and barns, etc. appeared to be quite small and the sky seemed huge. There were at least 3-5 of paintings in this series, and the canvases were very large. Can anyone identify the paintings or artist?

A while back someone showed me a rather graphic collection of paintings. Many included depictions of Hitler alongside piles of bodies, erect penises, and cartoonish figures gleefully engaging in coprophagy. Anyone have any idea who the artist might have been?
