What is surrealism?Surreal means both real and un-real.Surrealism is a style of art that is very much based on dreams.Surrealist artists juxtapose unrelated things.They are placed side by side.In dreams your mind can create a strange world. Surrealist artists wanted to try to capture that in real life.
