Welcome to the Fantastic Surrealist and Space-Themed Art of Chilam

Click on the various images to visit these strange and wonderful worlds and the spacecraft that traverse them
VOYAGER FLIES
PAST JUPITER

Digital (Blender™ and Photoshop™) --- 2016

Voyager, Jupiter

Thirty-nine years ago, the Voyager probes began their epic journeys to the outer planets and beyond. Voyager 1 yeilded spectacular images and data on Jupiter. This piece pays tribute to that history-making space flight. Voyager 1 is now the most distant man-made object in the universe.

VINTAGE FLYING SAUCER
Digital (Blender™) --- 2013

UFO

Ever since The Roswell Incident, alien spacecraft have been the mainstay of science-fiction art. In the 1950s, nothing was more iconic than the flying saucer. Throughout the cold war, images of flying disks captured the public imagination, stoked our fears and stimulated our sense of wonder. The UFO became a cultural phenomenon. For anyone born before the Space-Age, this should bring back both fond and scary memories.

THE VISITORS

Visitors

A strange girl on a strange horse on a strange alien world watches intently as two saucer-shaped objects appear in the sky.
PLANET-RISE ON ENCELADUS

Planet-rise on Enceladus

The planet Saturn as seen from its third-largest moon, Enceladus. Note the visitors in vintage fifties-style spacecraft and Titan in the distance.
WINGS OVER NIRVANA

Wings Over Nirvana

The state of perfect celestial order: Is there such a thing? The more complex a system becomes, the more a factor of chaos comes into play. Note the missing aircraft.
ESCAPE FROM ACHERON

Escape from Acheron

The Last Battlefield. The soldier, stripped of his armor & weapons, makes a futile attempt to evade the Recognizers; Is he destined to spend the rest of eternity running?
MOTHER-SUN

Mother-Sun

The source of life. The living world is attached to its parent sun by an umbilical cord as a fœtus in the womb. All life is on the inside surface of the world as in a closed system. Information enters into the world by the umbilical/optic nerve and passes between the eye and the synaptic nerve center. The soul-ship, with its spider-web sails sets sail from the dead world to this new world of life.
FLIGHT OF THE SCORPION

Flight of the Scorpion

The pilot Reylan Merak takes the recently-discovered alien star-cruiser Scorpion on a flight into deep space. Original in the collection of
Greg Slade.
ALIEN ARTIFACT: SPACECRAFT

Alien Artifact #1

Recently discovered on a rogue planetesimal, the artifact code-named Scorpion is a deep-space cruiser of extraordinarily sophisticated technology and believed to be alien in origin. The vessel is a masterpiece of bio-engineering and appears to be composed of living matter and metallo-proteins. Its origins and purpose are unknown. It is believed to be some sort of spy-craft.
DEEP SPACE

Spacescape

The infinite sky: once thought to be a shell around the Earth separating it from heaven, the depths of space have not lost their sense of wonder in the light of scientific discovery.
