René Magritte

The works of the once Brussels based Surrealist artist are great to review, while creating my Photomontages as they offer a wonderful insight into the minds eye. Magritte’s work offers me a very important historical contextualisation and provides me with additional inspiration and education into why some of the photomontages work better than others.
