RUSSIAN SURREALISM AND REALIST PAINTERS - BUY SURREALISM PAINTINGS AT ARTRUSSIA GALLERY

The philosophy of surrealism can be expressed in a slogan consisting just of tree words: "Love, beauty, revolt". And the great and unattainable Salvador Dali once claimed: "Surrealism is me!" The father of surrealism Andre Breton defined it as "…pure physical automatism, by means of which we try to express the real function of thought in words or pictorial art. This thought is dictated by a total absence of the mind’s control and is set outside all the ethical and aesthetical standards". The artistic concept of surrealism can be described this way: "the boarders between a personality and the world have been blurred, there is nothing definite, no one knows where "’he" starts and ends, what and where the world is". Surrealism has changed a lot though, seemingly loosing its philosophical context, preserving only its visual side, its phantasmagoria with modern surrealist artists striving rather at the creation of an unusual and memorable image than trying to depict their true troubles and inquiries. But anyway it still manages to catch attention with its uncommonness, its twisted composition, bright and eye-catching characters. Modern surrealist painters carry on the tradition of their predecessors, yet managing to add something new and exciting to it.
