    Looking for contemporary artists with surrealistic influencies

    Hi Guys, long time Lurker-First-Time-Poster here (but I think I would post more often, I learned a lot, and the artists here are amazing and seems pretty gentle )


    now, going on topic, I have to make a presentation for a Humanistic class about Surrealistic art, so far I think is comming up really good, but I would like to add more info about contemporary artists in this style (I only have info on Dalí, Matta, Chirico, Magritte, Esao Andrews, and a few others) and the current state of the style



    also If someone here post something influenced by this style I would be happy to use it on my presentation


    thanks in advance.
    and sorry for my bad english

    Look into "Magical Realism"...it's the "new surrealism".

    Tons of people working in this "genre":

    Bill Carman
    Daniel Merriman
    Michael Parkes
    Palencar
    Bruvel
    John Pitre
    Rob Gonsalves

    And many, many more...

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Some of that is pretty cool Bill. Some of it shows a winged monkey pulling a penis out of a hat (ok, technically it's a dildo, but I didn't want to write dildo).

    What would Caravaggio do?

    You are not a true surrealist unless you have put wings and a d _ _ _ _ in the same painting.

    Does pop surrealism count?

    Aside from flying phallic symbols , I thought "magical realism" is generally related to the mostly German art movement during the thirties(?), that sadly lacks winged organs. Great stuff, capturing the zeitgeist pretty well, imo.

    On topic (sort of), isn't most of the fantasy and sci-fi stuff essentially surreal in it's nature? There's plenty of that around..

    @v0rbiss: not really (at least Sci-fi, don't know about fantasy), surrealism tries to disorient, Sci-fi tries to explain the context


    surrealism tries to open de subconsiusness and it isn't necesary to understand it
    if in sci-fi you don't understand something, then you are doing it wrong


    at least in IMO though, Im no arts expert



    @Psychotime, never heard of the term before, Im going to look up for it

    I have two photographs in mind,

    first is Ho-Yeol Ryu's flock of airplanes: http://perso.charlyecho.com/wp-conte...2/02/XEmCJ.jpg

    and

    Jean Francois Rauzier's Versailles: http://www.hyper-photo.com/hyperpano...es/preview.jpg

    (Look up the names to find their websites.)

    On the painting camp I thought of Brad Holland. (?)

    Not sure how tightly these guys qualify as surrealism but I love how they have images that give you a fresh, although sometimes obvious, perspective on some familiar things, like Magritte did.

    Google Magical Realism, Fantastic Realism, Visionary Art, and Art of Imagination.
