CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium presents “Pop Surrealism”, a collective exhibition dedicated to the style or mannerism that in the fragmented contemporary art context has become a widely recognised movement, joining always more artists, lovers and collectors of every social class and by now at a trans-generational level. The exhibition of a concise and variegated selection of international protagonists offers even innovative perspectives on this genre that represents the most actual evolution of Lowbrow.
Lowbrow Art: From Mass Culture to Massive Culture

CON-TEMPORARY Art Observatorium
Corso Buenos Aires 42 11
Lavagna (GE), Italy
Opening hours: from Thursday to Sunday 3 - 6 pm or by appointment
The exhibition features artworks of drawing, painting and collage, both traditional and digital, by the artists: Dead Dolls House, Craig Hill, Mary M., Michael Vincent Manalo, Abramo ‘Tepes’ Montini, Carolina Pulido, The Cici Artist and Catrin Welz-Stein.
Like if it was a neo-mannerism, Pop Surrealism is apparently characterised by the mere technical practice in creating an aesthetically pleasing style, but its real objective is actually the elevation of the critical spirit and of the being as a protagonist.
The stylemarks have obviously changed and have been updated to actual trends, among which the collective imagination of surrealism that is now part of mass culture, but that in comparison are more real inasmuch popularly recognisable today, providing us a mirror where to look ourself in the social context, understand how and where we live.
The figure, character, individual or person is often fulcrum of every pop surrealist work, it is Alpha and Omega, origin and purpose of everything is surrounding it, and of what it surrounds itself with, the Zeitgeist of this epoch.
