Lee Ellis creates texture, emotion and undeniable intrigue in each of his striking paintings. Constantly working to bring sensation to the forefront, Ellis combines his bold palette with a distorted perspective to create fascinating surrealist scenes.

Yurnalis Bes’ realist style is typical of a Surrealist painting, and entices the viewer into the fanciful world of extraordinary colours and unfathomable depth. By pairing the recognisable with the unrecognisable, Bes creates new landscapes, and in doing so, questions our perception of reality.

A brief history of surrealism paintings

Surrealist art reveals the workings and imaginings of the unconscious mind. Emerging in the early 20th century, the Surrealists sought to revolt against realism and rationalism, and instead unlock the vision of the repressed mind.

Starting off as a literary movement, Surrealism was founded by Andre Breton. Surrealist writing, painting, drawing, sculpture and film-making took inspiration from Freudian theories of the unconscious and was directed towards a natural and unpremeditated form of expression. Characterized by aesthetic beauty and psychological depth, Surrealist paintings rely on a sense of automatism, in which art is expressed by the unconscious mind, rather than by conscious thought.
