Artist Reiko Matsuo has made a series of acrylic paintings, which can only be described as surrealistic comedy. She uses block colors and warped perspectives to portray everyday scenarios in a bizarre and humorous light.

She explains,

“I like to create stories that give people a little chuckle in conventional life. As character is everywhere, I find lots of stories and inspiration in daily life. I’m capturing one moment of it in my paintings, hoping the viewer can feel the humour and liveliness of the scene.”

Reiko grew up in Tokyo and studied graphic design at Tokyo Zokei University before turning to painting as an aside to her graphics work.
