I’m all the time looking for new and funky artwork to share with our social media followers. This week I stumbled upon a Polish artist known as, Igor Morski. Completely blown away by his method, concepts and realism, I used to be despatched on a tangent which result in additional discovery of up to date surrealism. So I made a decision to share the different sorts. However firstly, what’s surrealism?

In keeping with the Met Museum; “Surrealism originated within the late 1910s and early ’20s as a literary motion that experimented with a brand new mode of expression known as automated writing, or automatism, which sought to launch the unbridled creativeness of the unconscious.”

Surrealism in artwork is the visible expression of this philosophical motion. Surrealism depicts unnerving, illogical scenes with photographic precision. For instance; the creation of unknown creatures from on a regular basis objects. Early Surrealist artists used portray methods that allowed the unconscious to precise itself and or thought/idea.

One of the crucial well-known early surrealists was Salvador Dali. His floor breaking work wowed and challenged realists all over the place. His work under was hand painted.

In keeping with Charley Parker from the Strains and Colors Weblog; “Neo-Surrealism is a extra free and broadly utilized time period, used to confer with quite a lot of creative types that began appearing across the Sixties and Nineteen Seventies that integrated visible parts just like or borrowed from Surrealism. Whereas these types incorporate dream-like and oddly juxtaposed imagery, they’re not often based mostly on precise desires, and there may be little if any emphasis on the unique Surrealist precept of automatism.” Neo Surrealist artwork may be very acquainted to different immersing types reminiscent of; magic realism, fantasy artwork and visionary artwork.

There have been extra strict guidelines surrounding the idea and magnificence of early surrealism whereas neo-surrealism and up to date surrealism incorporates many alternative codecs, supplies, approaches and subjects. Whereas the early surrealistic ideas are nonetheless within the works of a number of essential artists of in the present day, many others have developed an aesthetic idea influenced by the languages of the telematic instruments for the lots. Surrealist artists in the present day not solely have bodily instruments however have digital instruments to make their works extra actual and extra consciously difficult than ever. So surrealism in the present day is principally artwork that appears so actual it falls beneath the label ‘realism’ which entertains concepts that are so the other way up they will solely be actual in our unconscious. Skys not the restrict.
