Crazy and surreal artworks and animations by Russian artist Andrey Kasay

For Russian artist Andrey Kasay, the world is very much turned upside down. His crazy and mind-blowing illustrations and animations are metaphoric and based on "irony and a sensitive vision on the contemporaneity".

Andrey's imagined characters might be looking out to sea, for instance, only their shadow changes your perception entirely, revealing not a landscape but a wall. It's all wonderfully confusing and the pop-art colour palette only adds to the overall comedic effect.

Brands such as Red Bull, Nike, The New Yorker and Google are just as intrigued by his offbeat style and approach, which Andrey's profile on his website describes as follows: "His characters explore their encirclement and the world around. In futile attempts to run away from the insane real world, they bump into the surrealism of their inner lives, and realise being an essential part of occurrence."

We especially love the naked man sitting on the edge of a food tray, contemplating a dive into what looks like spagetti. Or the gentleman in a red t-shirt, lying on an endless staircase that seems to reach the stars. You can see more of Andrey's mind-bending work at
