Xul Solar

The world of Xul Solar is filled with labyrinth like cities with dream like architecture, human headed serpents walking on four legs, floating airships with fantastic cities on the decks, and a wide array of other strange and fascinating imagery. According to the article on Xul at wikipedia, he invented two fully elaborated imaginary languages, symbols of which figure in his paintings.

Click on the 3rd picture down on this blog post over at Giornale Nuovo to see a large copy of one of Xul's best paintings.

Many thanks to Giornale Nuovo for introducing me to this artist.
