What happens when a group of current artists works come in contact unique to a movement long considered defunct, certainly past over by todays movements, even Street Art eclipsed it then became it. Surrealism has evolved, past the realistic nature of those famous branded painters. Now progressing, more relevant then ever before because most don’t call it surrealism although that’s what it is. As everything merges into one, conceptualism, mixed media and interactive work. At some point the surrealists had fizzled...permeated as an inert gas. Until 1970's as a resurgence, just look at artists such as Jeff Koon’s or Damian Hurst…Banksy and perhaps most recent director Vania Heymann's recent video looking back at ourselves through Bob Dylan's interactive art video: Like a Rolling Stone, retro yet advanced with users changing channels in real time and remain within the same song on the exact same word & beat, displays how surreal work is relevant again.
