Although the philosophy of this website contradicts with listing businesses on the Strip, I felt I had to make an exception in this case, since I greatly admire the work of Vladimir Kush.

If you’re as much into surrealism as I am, I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed if you decide to take a look at one of these galleries.
