International Surrealism Now

The New World of Surrealism in 21st Century

Art with the courage to face World issues head on, creating unprecedented opportunities for dialog can help change world order. The planet has been spiraling into a dangerous period in our collective history. Wars inspired by the highest profit margins and savage monopolistic capitalism feeding modern imperialism has resulted in radical terrorism. Medieval societies are using 21st century technology to combat these dictatorships. With a diverse population of billions, how can we possibly create a state of a social equilibrium?

These are the factors drive the Contemporary Surrealist movement. Art has the capacity to heal these wounds, offering fresh perspectives and solutions to address World trauma.

Surrealism gives hope new life. Bright colors interact with "blue thinking", opposing "dark thinking" colors. Images of fying in a dream implies freedom and possibilities through fantasy. The wings spread and the embracing arms stretch wide, flying through the buildings, mountains and valleys, sea and rivers.

Understanding surrealism of the 20th and 21st century opens our awareness to an absolute freedom.

The creative and ideological freedom and courage of the artists combines with the modern advent of the internet and adds insightful psychological meaning to the surrealistic art of the 21st century.
