The best surrealist tees mash up part dream and part reality. The designs use physical objects and distort or rearrange them in an abstract way. Artists like Salvador Dali and Joan Miro highlighted the golden age of surrealism around 1930's. Since then we have seen surrealist photomontages, abstract photography and 1000s of fantasy like drawings. The best surrealist artworks are those with a little culture or story to go behind them to communicate an abstract language.
