Riffle Shuffle Creator Space Launches Bicycle Surrealism King on Kickstarter

Here's the second deck from Riffle Shuffle Creator Space! Bicycle Surrealism King is a gorgeous deck featuring stunning 3D visuals from the artist Omar Aquil. Omar’s source of inspiration lays in his studies of Picasso’s cubist rendition of reality.

The master of cubism is famous for synthesizing different points of view of the same object all in one painting. This results in geometric distortion of his images, creating a unique depiction of common objects. Many have been inspired by his work, but Omar thought of a new way of rendering the vision of Picasso, using modern technology- by pulling the signature flattened geometric shapes back into the 3D space.

This way, Omar creates compelling conceptual imagery full of colors, texture, and almost sculptural structures that mimic Picasso’s famous paintings. The resulting pictures give off a vibe of a dreamy surrealist space full of Dalí-like eyes keeping watch over the composition.

Fully custom, the deck features a dream-like structure back design centralized around the ever-repeating gold eye. The countless spirals and cylinders adorned with more eyes seem to mirror each other and the whole image is brought together by coiled copped spades in each corner.

The court cards are the pinnacle of geometric mastery of the designer. Each of the cards from each of the suits has a completely unique design. The characters created by Omar are playful and colorful, and almost completely abstract.

The indices are very simple too, only featuring a subtle shadow. The symbols for spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds have a unified design, only differentiated by colors; sky blue for spades, aquamarine for clubs, orange for hearts and golden for diamonds. All these colors correspond to all the mainly used colors of the deck, which creates a consistent impression of the overall design.

The Ace of Spades is dominated by a sculpture of a spade in a playful blue, red and gold colorway. The various geometric shapes not only vary in color but also texture, which creates such a dynamic feeling that it seems like the sculpture could stir to life at any moment.

The tuck box leaves showcase the same spades structure. The top and both sides of the box feature a decorative composition of metal looking spirals and waves, with a golden eye in the center. The whole composition is made in warm tones of orange, gold, and copper.

Pledge starts at $8 on Kickstarter. Bicycle Surrealism King Playing Card will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company, air-cushion Finish with the Bicycle Classic Paper. Limited Edition of 2500 Decks.
