Oriental Surrealism Print

$50.00

To set the tone for the Oriental Surrealism collection of illustrations is this bold image that celebrates the femininity found in both Eastern and Western poster art in the early stages of the 20th century.

Oriental Surrealism is a concept that grew out of a fascination with the design of communist propaganda posters from the Far East and the creative principles of French Surrealism in the 1920s. The combination of these two artistic pretenses gives the artist and reader an unlikely landscape for absolute creative freedom.
