Oriental Surrealism Art Book


Oriental Surrealism is a visual celebration of the poignant juxtaposition of French surrealist philosophies and the colours from the Far East that illuminate them.
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.
