Surrealism is a direction in art that originated in 1924 in France, but the term itself was created in 1917 by Guillaume Apollinaire. André Breton, who published the Manifesto of Surrealism, is considered the father of this direction. The period in which surrealism arose was called the "age of dreams". In the first phase, this direction was visible only in literature, but later also penetrated into visual arts. The first exhibition of surreal painters took place in 1925. To this day, many artists around the world follow the idea expressed by the precursors of surrealism in painting. Surrealism in painting assumes a visual expression of internal perception, which often means a contradiction with logic. In brief, surrealism negates the assumptions of realism. Surreal images seem grotesque and oneirism. The element of surprise, nonsense and absurdity is of great importance. Surrealist painters are distinguished by unfettered imagination and creation without any inhibitions. Contemporary Polish surrealists include, among others, Rafał Olbiński, Jarosław Kukowski and Jacek Malinowski, who are inspired by, for example, the surreal works of a representative of this direction in painting, which was Salvador Dali. The sale of surreal images of well-known and respected Polish and foreign artists, which is run by the TouchofArt gallery is a great honor of providing art lovers with what is unusual and beautiful, and often arousing strong and extreme emotions.
