3rd ARTstyleART Theme Announcement. Surrealism + Addiction.

Hello Everybody

I invite you to explore different styles in art together not theoretically but practically.

Artists were constantly in the search for new methods and ways of depicting of a constantly changing world and they gave life to so many styles in art. Those styles disappeared and reappeared in altered forms. So, we will try abstract art, modern, expressionism and many others.

And today I would like to announce a Theme for the 3rd ArtstyleART.

It will be Surrealism + Addiction. It is not easy one, I guess but I believe in you!

Surrealism

This style holds the first place in the rating of abnormality. It differs from others with paradox forms and illusions. All surrealists were fond of unconsciousness studies. They created paintings full of illusions based on a play of their unconsciousness. The surrealists combined night dreams and reality. No doubts, the main representative of this style is Salvador Dali. You are very welcome to read my posts about him.

And the idea of your painting should be ADDICTION. It could be addiction to internet, smartphones, other people, food, alcohol etc. It could be also a good addiction like addiction to Steemit, for example.)))

There are some examples (not for surrealism but addiction). It is just examples. You could these addictions or it would be great if you paint your vision of addiction.

So, I invite you to take the idea of Addiction and make it in Surrealism style.

Please make a post with your painting with the tag #artstyleart and leave a comment to my post with the link to your post. I will also appreciate if you give reference to this announcement in your post in order more people could join.

Please submit your works by the end of next Fri. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make a painting as I will be travelling to Saint - Petersburg for 4 days. So, don't worry if I don't answer your comments.

REWARD - 20 STEEM (no idea how it will be distributed))

I am also trying to build a Steemit Artists database. Please let me know if somebody is missing. And I am also sorry if I added somebody by mistake. Let me know and I would remove you from the list. If anybody doesn't want to be in the list, please let me also know. Thank you!

Oh, thanks @aksinya,


I think contest price is like bonus that one get with his fix pay. Fix pay is to learn new techniques and develop skills. I feel that your contest has maximum fix pay. So, even one do not get bonus , it's ok.
Ha ha ...


... Have a Nice Day ...

@aksinya, excellent contest idea! I'm not a knowledgeable person about art styles and techniques and all that, but I am a big fan of Surrealism art. Really looking forward to what people will create for this one.

Unfortunately I won't be able to participate in this contest because I don't have the skills necessary for it. Maybe a future contest. :)

@aksinya, as I mentioned in my post, I made my design more to promote your contest and less as an entry for the contest. It's not a painting and it's clearly not Surrealist art. :)

I'm really looking forward to seeing you continue this little project. :)
