Synesthesia is the neurological condition in which the stimulation of one sense leads to the automatic experience of another sense.

If you live in San Francisco, California, then you may be lucky enough to come across the art of Andres Amador. He doesn't paint or sculpt.

I bet there is a hungry crocodile lying in wait under the page, ready for a meal. Looks like they are walking right out of the wall. His work really comes to life.
