Surrealist Society

I was turned on to Dali and Max Ernst in my 20s and that was it for me. Ever since, I’ve been a committed Surrealism fan and Surrealist artist. Though Surrealism covers a wide range of media, tones and styles, it has an unmistakable vibe for those who resonate with it. Dark, playful, wise, sad, mystifying, transcendent or heartbreakingly beautiful, Surrealism taps into our dreams and our buried feelings, reminding us of the strange complexity of what it means to be human. Please share your favorite Surrealist art and Surrealist mail art!

Thank you Melanie for the wonderful trio of surrealism! Really great stuff & I love the envelope. It really made my day when I opened my mailbox : )

If you like Russell Manning, you might like Freddie Baer, the collage artist who did "Ecstatic Incisions."

I love Dorothea Tanning's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

I looked up "The Hallucinogenic Torreador" online and immediately recognized it as one of the paintings in the Dali Museum in Sarasota, FL.  I took my niece and nephew there in 1992.  They were familiar with the general works on exhibit at the St. Louis Art Museum from many visits there, but I think children are more "entertained" by such vivid Surrealism as produced by Dali.

I used to have a poster of "The Hallucinogenic Torreador" in my office.

The hand-colored Salvador Dali etching, "Presenting the Flower", hangs on the wall just three feet from where I sit at my computer.
