I'm a huge fan of surrealism art. Like most people, Dali and Magritte excite me a lot. About eight years ago I discovered a great artist on eBay who did surrealism work: Robert Deyber. I buy a lot of art on eBay, because if you sift through all the crap you really can get some fabulous paintings for a good price. I'm a big fan of having real paintings in my house, as opposed to photographs or framed posters. When I buy, I buy what I like. I don't think about whether it will be worth something someday or anything like that.
At any rate, when I discovered Robert Deyber, he was just breaking out on eBay, so his paintings were going for maybe $300-600, which is a lot for an eBay painting. Oh, how I'm kicking myself now for not buying more. I have one, and I'm staring at it as I type this. It's one of my favorite paintings. Only one, though! I got outbid a lot. He was on his way up. But at the time, I was still in law school and shortly after just entering my profession, so I really didn't even have $500 to spend on a painting. I could really kick myself now. Although I thought he was super talented, I just couldn't afford it. And then he disappeared from eBay.
So, Robert Deyber's paintings now go for at least $5,000 at galleries. His web site is here. He's amazingly talented, if you like weird surrealism paintings. (The titles are important to his paintings.) I don't want to link to them here because of copyright issues, but seriously check him out. He shows at a gallery in Oak Brook, and I may wander over there and buy another painting one of these days.
