Ronen Goldman: The Surrealistic Pillow

Tel Aviv based Israeli artist Ronen Goldman‘s work from the year 2012 onwards has caught the attention of visual art critics and commentators, and one can see why. Apart from showcasing his proficiency and considerable skills in generating extremely imaginative visualscapes through digital photo manipulations, Ronen’s work also has a streak of social satire and commentary infused with dream-nightmare states. Tapping into long traditions of 20th century surrealistic art and marrying it with 21st century digital tool sets, Ronen’s surrealistic pillow is a memorable and provocative statement. Take a look.

Thanks for sharing these. My favourite is the school of fish in mid-air.

I have always wanted to study art in college and have more recently (as I have learned more about life) realized that art school is basically an expensive way to become a waitress… lol, who needs art school when one has talent.
