Magritte 2014
Contest Directions: This Friday will be the 116th birthday of Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte. His surrealist paintings are more than just visually impressive; they are frequently thought-provoking. His "The Treachery of Images" series of paintings shows realistically drawn objects titled "Ceci n'est pas…" (French for "This is not…"). His famed image of a pipe is captioned "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe"). As Magritte himself stated: "The famous pipe. How people reproached me for it. And yet, could you stuff my pipe? No, it's just a representation, is it not? So if I had written on my picture 'This is a pipe,' I'd have been lying!" Magritte got a job designing wallpaper at a wallpaper factory, and as a sideline designed posters and advertisements. His first one-man exhibition, in 1927 in Brussels, was a flop, the art critics hating all 61 pieces shown. Magritte gained real fame in 1960 (shortly before his death in 1967) when his paintings influenced pop art and culture.
To celebrate the 116th birthday of Rene Magritte, photoshop any of his paintings. Some examples are: show how he would have created his works in the modern days, what people or objects he would choose, etc. (If you use any of his nude sources, please cover the models in bikini to make them safe for work).
Many thanks to Xaos54 for the themepost.
