Coimbra, Portugal -International Surrealism Now is the largest international surrealist exhibition in the World, presenting 107 of the world’s leading surrealism artists from 45 countries.

In an attempt to take art to the people en masse – and promote the largest group exhibit of surreal art this year — Portuguese surrealist painter Santiago Ribeiro is teasing the public with flash images of his work in the most famous intersection of the world: Times Square.

The pieces are part of the International Surrealism Now exhibit, which isto open at the Coimbra House Culture and Chiado Museum in Portugal next November 17 of 2018. Billed as the largest world exhibition of contemporary Surrealism art in Europe – with more than 100 artists from 45 countries participating – the exhibit of paintings, drawings, digital art,photographs and sculpture is also expected to be shown, at least inpart, at several monuments and public spaces throughout Portugal.

“As always I´m doing something different and the idea to exhibit inTimes Square in New York shows how the mass media are our modern means to show our art,” Ribeiro said.

Ribeiro’s work has been featured at the U.S.Embassy in Lisbon, in the PortugueseAmerican Journal, in DigitalMeets Culture, Pressenzafr,, Pravda in Portuguese, Huffingtonpost, TheHerald News, AssociatedPress and many other publications (link).
