Felix Moya "Dreams"

Surrealism is an art style developed in Europe in the 1920's, characterized by using the subconscious as a source of creativity to liberate pictorial subjects and ideas. Surrealist paintings often depict unexpected or irrational objects in an atmosphere of fantasy, creating a dreamlike scenario. In Latin America Surrealism also allowed many Latin American artists to explore their individual ancestry. Jose Felix Moya from the Dominican Republic, enters the Surrealist circle in 1960, after he studied in Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, in Dominican Republic. Moya's work reflects his own heritage, depicting tropical fantasies. His emphasis relates to his contact with the Surrealist, which perceived artistic expression as a connection with humanity's common subconscious forms and experiences.
