Raul Lebajo’s unique brand of environmental surrealism is borne out of the layered and unprecedented use of objects within the local and familiar space. This is in stark contrast with the dominant aesthetic of fantastical elements that distort and alienate from its common reference point within the traditional world of objects. Lebajo’s own world consists of elements that are distinct yet familiar to our own.

His painting’s enchanting and engrossing aura lends itself to Lebajo’s own penchant for using contrasting yet muted colors and hues. This, in effect, alludes towards an idea and concept of a welcoming and inviting world and reality.
