The Artists of the International Surrealism Now exhibition.
The Artists of the International Surrealism Now exhibition.
The exhibition consists of members from Santiago’s “International Surrealism Now” and members from several fantastic/visionary groups such as Otto Rapp’s Visionary Art Network, Liba Waring Stambollion’s Dreams and Divinities, and Brigid Marlin’s Society for the Art of the Imagination.
My wife Debbie and I have begun work on the creation of an art magazine entitled “The Oneiric Realist.” The magazine will showcase art and literature by today’s artists and writers who have dedicated their lives to the continuation of the surrealist tradition. Artists from the International Surrealism Now exhibitions will be featured in each issue. A section of the magazine will provide exhibition dates to interesting exhibits around the world. I will be featuring some of my surreal creations and experiments in issues. Artwork from the artists in groups I created on Facebook and the Surrealism groups I’m a member of will be the well I draw from when putting an issue together.
I will also be asking artists who I’ve come to know on Facebook to submit work for the magazine. I also intend to create a group or page for the magazine which will also serve to find other artists who wish to show their work in the magazine. Debbie will be looking at literary submissions and editing the publication.
If you’re interested in submitting art, poetry, articles, or stories, please send your submission to email@example.com.
We’re excited to be working on this together. The ideas are flowing faster than we can write them down. We will be working to make the magazine itself a work of art, and the voice of Surrealism in our time.
UPDATE: The Oneiric Realist group is now on Facebook.
“The Oneiric Realist” is an art magazine project started by Steve and Debbie Smith. The purpose of the magazine is:
1. To publish artwork and literature by artists influenced by the Dada and Surrealist movements.
2. To publish work that expresses the freedom of the imagination.
3. To publish artwork that express the fantastic and the irrational.
This group will be a meeting place for all those involved in the magazine project and all those that wish to become involved. This group will provide updates on the project, serve as an open forum for ideas, and submissions for the magazine.
Just imagine this group as a tall office building and the members of this group are the staff of The Oneiric Realist working together to create the magazine.
We welcome your ideas and suggestions to make this an amazing magazine.
For those that spend time designing and creating art with computer software such as Photoshop. We are interested in anything you can create that will help the design of the magazine. Don’t hesitate to send in a design idea or just something you created with only the magazine in mind.
I’d like to note that we are also seeking artists that create comic style work of a surreal and irrational nature.
Artists and Authors,
Please submit your work on the wall of the group or contact us directly by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

I started streaming live video during my drawing sessions a few days ago and I invite you visit my Facebook Artist “Page” and view my artwork in progress.
The video stream is created by suspending my phone / camera above the work during drawing sessions. I intend to broadcast each day for a period of 20 mins to 90 mins and may at times broadcast several times a day. Previous live streams videos are posted on the wall of my page at the end of each session. These videos and the live stream are not very entertaining in my mind but I thought I would share with you the process of my automatic/spontaneous ink drawings.
Below are progress photos of the piece I am presently working on.
Summer 2016, a new edition of the International Surrealism Now will take place at the Multimedia P.O.R.O.S. Museum, in the village of Condeixa-a-Nova, in Portugal.
The International Surrealism Now is a project by Santiago Ribeiro, Portuguese surrealist painter, who has been dedicated to promoting the Surrealism of the 21st century, through exhibitions held in various parts of the world: Berlin, Moscow, Dallas, Los Angeles, Mississippi, Warsaw, Nantes, Paris, Florence, Madrid, Granada, Barcelona, Lisbon, Belgrade, Monte Negro, Romania, Japan and Brazil.
International Surrealism Now began in Coimbra in 2010, where a first major exhibition took place, organized by the Bissaya Barreto Foundation and conceived by Santiago Ribeiro. Since then, the event has been held in Conímbriga, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Museu de Conímbriga (the second most visited museum in Portugal). After a show in Paris, with the support of the GAPP (Art Gallery Portugal Present) and Liba WS, once again organized by the Bissaya Barreto Foundation and Santiago Ribeiro, it moved to Madrid, with the support of Yamal Din, to Dallas, Los Angeles and Mississippi, with the support of the American surrealist artist Shahla Rosa, and also to Berlin, with the support of the Portuguese Consulate. Recently, the exhibition has been presented to the public in the medieval Palace of Ega with the organization by Rede de Bibliotecas and the Municipality of Condeixa-a-Nova, at Vieira Portuense Gallery, in Porto, and Particula Coimbra, with the support of Bissaya Barreto Foundation, Portugal.
