Check out these paintings by Ronald Kurniawan. His brilliantly-colored animal and pop-culture beings immersed in environs of emotional intensity are the stuff dreams are made of. His artist statement tells:

With the belief that the sublime and nuclear age could coexist, he paints romantic environments and breaks the quiet scene with juxtaposed imagery taking the shape of icons and letterforms. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles where he paints meticulously and happily accompanied by his pug Ruffles, an avid artist himself.
