Pop Surrealism In The Artwork of Gloria Muriel

I first saw Gloria Muriel's artwork at Comic-Com San Diego last summer. Inspired by the work of Dali and yet moved by a spiritual search, her passion and enthusiasm is clearly evident in these colorful yet mournful fantasy images in our gallery.

You can see more of Muriel's work on her site.
