Terra Exorcism Surveillance: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
Exorcism is the practice of evicting demons or other evil spiritual entities from a person or place of which they have possessed. The practice is quite ancient and still part of the belief system of many religions. The concept of possession by evil spirits and the practice of exorcism are very ancient and were widespread, and may originate in prehistoric Shamanistic beliefs.
The Christian New Testament includes exorcism among the miracles performed by Jesus. Because of this precedent, demonic possession was part of the belief system of Christianity since its beginning, and exorcism is still a recognized practice of Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox and some Protestant sects. In recent times, the practice of exorcism has diminished in its importance to most religious groups and its use has decreased. Generally, it is currently found mainly in Eastern Europe and Africa, with some cases gaining media coverage; Anneliese Michel is perhaps the most recent of these. This is due mainly to a greater understanding of psychology and the functioning and structure of the human mind. Many of the cases that in the past which were candidates for exorcism are often explained to be the products of mental illness, and are handled as such. More generally, the change in worldview since the Age of Enlightenment, which put increased value on rationalism, materialism, and naturalism, has led to a decrease in the belief of God and the supernatural.
This is my old work that I have tweaked a little recently. The idea is still very impressive, but I do not think that I achieved a full success with its delivering. There is still more to be done, however, perhaps, in a new design. At some point long time ago ;) I did consider this work as one of my best creations from the technical point of view.

I hope you don't mind me asking however, I was wondering what was the original inspiration for this labor of art?

Do you allow people to use your images on youtube videos? Videos would be for 'entertaiment purposes only' and wouldn't be used to profit from views. Please inform. Thank you

The amount of effort and detail you put into your work is appreciated as you have great talent. I love surrealism in art, and I’m always looking for things to stimulate my imagination.

I work in the design department at HarperCollins. We would like to get in touch with George and was wondering if you have his direct contact details that you can provide me with? Thanks kindly,

I really loved the picture and wanted to use it as a desk top. The only thing stopping me is the balloons just don't work with the rest of the picture. They just stick out to much.

Great work - I'm editing a magazine called Dream Creation in the uk - its a free magazine with a psychedelic focus. I found you're image "Terra Exorcism Surveillance" and would like to ask you if I could use it on the cover of the magazine.

wow this is very detailed, and the beuti-is amazing! I love the temporal transition effect. Gives the painting an excellent "reflective" mood.
