Surrealism: An archaic term. Formerly an art movement. No longer distinguishable from everyday life. Brad Holland
I've always enjoyed feeling a connection to the avant-garde, such as Dada and surrealism and pop art. The only thing the artist can do is be honest with themselves and make the art they want to make. That's what I've always done. Jeff Koons
Surrealism - in particular with Salvador Dali - was all about ego. It was all about extreme individualism. Alejandro Jodorowsky
The poetry and transgression that was so much of surrealism's anarchic force has been recruited into mainstream culture. It has been made commonplace by television and magazine merchandising, by computer games and Internet visuals, by film and MTV, by the fashion shoot. Graham Joyce
When I was an adolescent, I abandoned my country at 23 years to come to Paris to know Andre Breton, the 'Pope of Surrealism.' And for three years, I was there working with him being a surrealist. Alejandro Jodorowsky
