Neosurrealism is a genre in the visual arts that differs from its predecessor in the absence (obligatory for Surrealism) of the main idea — automatism.

About genre and ways of implementation

[edit | edit source]

To create works in this genre, it is not necessary fall into a trance, communicate with the spirits of the dead, aliens from another worlds, or use drugs. It is enough to have imagination and a computer with a minimum set of graphic editors; like Photoshop or Sketch.

You won’t even need to take special neo-surrealism training courses (there are none, besides, in the absence of innate imagination, they are unlikely to help); more effective — will to experiment with original photographs and a margin of time.
