Topic Description

Surrealism – What is surrealism? The answer to this question is as manifold as the artworks commonly being connected to that term. Literally it means: What lies above reality. Dreams and mysteries linger in this world, but also myths and archetypes, gods and demons of the subconscious. Show us your take on this adventurous way of understanding art and let us delve deep in the strange and bizarre realms of surrealism!



We pick three winners for each challenge. The winners will be announced a few hours after the challenge has ended. The prizes will be distributed like this:

The 1st winner can choose 6 prizes of the list below.

The 2nd winner can choose 5 of the prizes the 1st winner does not choose, from the list below.

The 3rd winner can choose 4 of the remaining prizes, from the list below.

Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Rizal Rizfani

Mostly black and white renders don’t do it for us because it exhales interest from the image. but the daring composition in color and shape, along with an intriguing story that invites somebody, the image works. Nice job!

2nd place by Gregory Smith

This image jumps out in color composition and quality in detail. It’s interesting from close and far away. However, the fact that it edges more on fantasy than surrealism, and a small lack of sharpness pushed it down a bit.

3rd place by George Daskalakis

This artwork grabbed our attention. It’s somehow wired, but in a way, that we can’t look away. George performed very well to present his creepy surrealist hand.
