How we do things...

Wondering If Your Art Work Is Surreal?

Surrealism is characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions or by resembling a dream. Surrealist works feature the element of surprise and non sequitur. You might be thinking, “what the frack does that mean?”. Let me explain...
Fantastic imagery can be created from this world by rethinking known ideas and presenting them in a completely unordinary scene, or from your own little world straight from your imagination. Incongruous juxtapositions are unexpected or out of place items that you have in fact put together such as a face on a flower for example. Non sequitur is a lack of meaning relative to what it follows and seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing.

In addition: "I would also say that 'surreal' art has to do more with psychology and the present day world, rather than 'fantasy' art which often is set in the distant past as well as mythical worlds. Surrealism is more personal." - Tolkyes

With that, please make sure to read our rules.
Hello all! :wave:

I just wanted to drop in and let everyone know how much I have been enjoying everyone's work. We have some amazing talent here, and I am happy to have been able to provide somewhat of a vessel for our community to thrive in, here on dA. But having said that, I myself being a huge fun and appreciator of surreal art, am mainly an experimental photographer at my core. At this point, it only makes sense to hand the rains over to someone who lives in our genre - DanNeamu, and myself will be switching places. And he will be taking the lead going forward.

Huge thanks to :icondanneamu:! Please give him a warm welcome digital handshake!

That is all! :D
