Mark Ryden is a very famous contemporary painter and his art is very popular among tattoo lovers. If you are not familiar with his work, you can check his Facebook page. The style of Ryden is called Pop Surrealism. It mixes the odd aesthetic of Surrealism, with many symbols and meanings, and the cute and kitsch aesthetic of Pop culture and art. Mark Ryden's universe is inhabitated with creatures close to childhood, such as dolls, teddy bears and robots, but they are not all innocent. His oil paintings are exploring dark themes such as occultism, sexuality and reflections on our society. Still, the strange and cute look of his creatures attracts all kind of fans who want to get tattoos of the master.
