The Art of Dániel Taylor
Surrealism and Pop-Culture
The surrealism is an artistic movement that have always fascinated me. Either with painters such as Dali or Magritte, this style is a real mystery for me and make me ask the good questions on the art. I think that the surrealism allows to asking oursleves about our reality and her limits, and in the same time to showing the power of our dreams and of the imagination.
Hungarian artist Dániel Taylor is one of the right heir of all those surrealist painters and he is even adding his own touch inspired by the Pop-Culture. By using tools like Photoshop, Dániel knows exactly how to use few colors to creates amazing universes.
His artworks makes me think of different video games such as Monument or Journey, with their heroes lost in huge and vast worlds. Some of his illustrations are also inspired by the imaginaries jails from Giovanni Battista Piranesi.
