A guide for all artists, writers and creative people. Does more imagination make art better? What must the ideal artist be like? How does the mind create? What is, or might be, the unconscious?
21st Century Surrealism explores the mind and creative thinking. It is a friendly guide that examines what might make good art good, and why, and codifies some general principles about creative thinking and how to make, and how to appraise, good art.
A century after the first Manifesto of Surrealism, 21st Century Surrealism attempts to update the principles of the art of the unconscious. Careful to embrace all media: visual, musical, literary, and any other, this engaging and wondrous book examines the workings of the mind with respect to creativity, explores consciousness and the unconscious, and acts as a guide, inspiration, and a tool box for artists and creative thinkers working in any medium.
