Welcome to Art Essentials!


Art should be more than merely a decorative object. It should either have a story, of a meaning or a message.

:rose: The mission of Art Essentials is to collect such artworks.

:sunnysideup: The group has been founded in October 2011, yet the Art Essentials gallery already features some of the best artworks on deviantART!

They said...

:ladybug: "The mind which plunges into Surrealism, relives with burning excitement the best part of childhood."
~André Breton

:fish: Surrealism is not a school of poetry but a movement of liberation ... A way of rediscovering the language of innocence, a renewal of the primordial pact, poetry is the basic text, the foundation of the human order. Surrealism is revolutionary because it is a return to the beginning of all beginnings.
~OCTAVIO PAZ, Alternating Current

The Surreal Dozen is an inspirational periodical that appears at totally random intervals, but at all times featuring select artworks from the Art Essentials gallery. I hope you enjoy this seventh art feature of surrealistic artworks.
7 is a very special number.... so happy New Year and keep it surreal!

and what about literature? I'm really disappointed that here on deviantart there are only few groups with actual folder for surreal and abstract poems...
