Surrealism lives on, and it turns out, it even flourishes. The author is James Jean who fit all of his biography into a line “b. 1979 – “. This is probably to support his status of surrealism artist. His works can be defined like that: I haven’t a clue what the artist wanted to say, but it’s witty. Most of the paintings were made using acrylic. And it’s a good idea, as it made James’s works even more mysterious and out of this world.
If you look at watercolors by Moira Hahn, you’ll never believe that she is an American artist who lives in Los-Angeles and graduated from the Boston School of Arts. All her works are filled with Japanese spirit, but not the simple and old one. Here you’ll see blue Godzillas, surfer cats, and traditional Dalmatians getting water from a well to suppress a fire.
I don’t think there are any more sincere and clear works than a chid’s painting. I don’t know why but I really wanted to add some children’s pictures to the site, they have so much of it, and it is so pure.

Sometimes it seems that pure painting is totally on the outside as a type of art. Or at least that it exists somewhere deep in the past. An artist Katya Zarinskaya defies such negative statements with her work. Her creativity is an eternal search for harmony between the beauty of the world and the person. And I think Katya has managed to find this harmony that fills her paintings. And she also added to it the harmony of forgetting and the feeling of dance.
I would like to show the development of art in 19-20th centuries in the European countries. In it, from my point of you, there’s full reflection of how quickly the world changed at that time. Those pictures are not very much alike, but they make a full visualization of that time only when they are together.

In the end of the 13th century China was occupied by Mongols, and for almost a century Yuan dynasty ruled the country. Cultural heritage was severely damaged again: palaces and temples were burned, art collections were robbed. But some masterpieces of Chinese art have lived till now.
