Oscar Sanmartin (Vargas) (b. 1972) is a mixed-media artist from Zaragoza (Spain). On his website you will find a collection of his box-dioramas, absurdist, surreal bio-etchings and paintings and faux retro collage-esque works, book illustrations and commercial art pieces. Marvellous stuff. {Oscar's BLOG}

The drawings are amazing. The dioramas(ae?) - particularly the one with Dürer's rhino remind me very strongly of Charles Matton's dioramas(ae). I have a feeling you might like them too, PK. I took some photos over here:

Oh that's great Suzanne. I remember the Wurzeltod post and your reminder today gave me reason to go and see Matton's site this time. Cheers!
