Surreal Research Surrealism developed after World War I (early 20 th century) and was inspired by the Dada movement. People started rebelling the traditional ways of life and thinking beyond reality. Andre Breton was the founder of Surrealism because he was exposed to the horrors of war. The surrealist movement started in Paris. The most famous surrealists were Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Rene Magritte, and Joan Miro.
Surreal Collage My surreal collage shows dancers dancing on a rainbow in the sky and me flying almost like a fairy. I used feathering on some of the dancers to blend them into the rainbow and sky more. I also used juxtaposition to blend the wings into the dancer to make it look like she’s flying. Dislocation was also applied, and I changed the opacity.
Cameo Appearance in a Famous Work of Art I first took a picture of me in a scenery that would fit into the painting (walking through a forest on a beautiful fall day). Then, I used my magic wand to cut out the background. Using the clone stamp, I was able to easily soften the edges of the picture and merge it into the painting. By resizing the image and putting it to scale, I made the photo perfectly blend into the painting.
Cameo Appearance in a Movie Scene I used a scene from the movie “Charlie St. Cloud” and added my dad, my sister, and I riding on a jet ski in the background. To make it seem more realistic, I used the feathering technique, the blur tool, and clone stamp. The masks really helped blend the images together.
