About Surrealism Surrealism is a cultural movement that began in the early 1920s. It is best known for the visual artworks and writings of the group members. Today surrealism is no longer a movement but a type of art that a lot of artists like to use to express them selves, in this digital era surrealism is one of the top digital art styles.
André Breton (1896-1966) The founder of Surrealism. He was French writer and poet. He wrote Surrealist Manifesto (Manifeste du surréalisme) in 1924, which he defined surrealism as "pure psychic automatism".
Salvador Dalí (1904-89) He was Catalan-Spanish surrealist painter born in Catalonia, Spain. He combined a hyperrealist style with dream-like, sexualized subject matter. His collaborations with Hollywood and commercial ventures, alongside his notoriously dramatic personality, earned him scorn from some Surrealist colleagues.
Salvador Dalí ‘s painting Meditative Rose ( 1958 ) is something of an enigma coming from a painter whose works are primarily the stuff of dream and nightmare. The Persistence of Memory The Persistence of Memory (1931), he refer as "hand-painted dream photographs" and The Persistence of Memory can certainly be characterized as such.
Yves Tanguy A French painter and one of the key figures of French Surrealism in the early 20th century. Having never received any formal training, Tanguy was a self-taught painter who became best known for his highly imaginative landscapes and detailed precision.
Indefinite Divisibility (1942) The blue void on the horizon represents uncertainty, but a calmness in that the artist is not worried about what lays beyond this void. The bright orange of some items represents happiness, and passion.
