“People have always been interested in going to see these animals at aquariums or while scuba diving; instead I am bringing these creatures up to us.” – Conor Culver. “Home Security” by Conor Culver

Conor Culver’s “Underwater Surrealism” is a play on the names and habits of marine life by grounding them in the human experience. Apart from chuckles and grins, Culver’s subliminal aim is to illustrate the importance of these creatures by bringing them into our world, above the aqueous currents.
