What would happen if you mix surreal Victorian pop and Alice in Wonderland imagery? Spanish artist Iria do Castelo asked herself the very same question before embarking in the project titled “Curious Events during Teatime.”

Being a fan of surrealism, absurdism, and phantasmagorical imagery, I was immediately drown to do Castelo’s sculptures. Some of my favorites are the nonchalant Hawaiian rabbit couple, the spooky armless girl running around ecstatic and the mischievous nerd-looking teakettle girl. They all seem to emerge from a strange dream where the bizarre meets the cutesy.

“I work into surreal projects inspired by a lysergic pop that ranges from terrible to irresistible, from hallucination to tale.” The artist explains. “Curious Events during Teatime” definitely fits into all of that and more.

What’s extra? There is no need to take any hallucinogenic drug to embark in a trippy journey when you meet these characters. Enjoy!
