Ideas of Surrealism and Symbolism Will Live Forever!

What looks absurd for some people may be treated as a masterpiece or a work of genius for others. It is simply because art is one if not the only sphere of human life where there are no standards, unbreakable rules, and unshakeable definitions of what is nice and attractive and what is not. Art is very and very different, it has a great diversity of forms, and while it can be universal in terms of meaning, art can never be universal in terms of similarity.

After all, everything is relative in this world: every individual may have his personal understanding of such categories as beauty, justice, etc. formed under the influence of particular social environment, ethnicity peculiarities or personal genotype, family influence, education, etc. Speaking about beauty or beauty in art to be more particular, we should admit that there is no antonym or opposite for beauty in art. There are simply different forms of beauty and aesthetics in art. Finally, before we learn to use more than 10 percents of our brain capabilities, we can hardly treat something for sure… But that will do with philosophy. Today we just want to show you a set of illustrations, which are different, unusual, untypical, alternative, non mainstream, or whatever you may call them. We are sure that readers of Cruzine will find a lot of aesthetics and true art in the illustrations below.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
