rene magritte; a fantastic surrealist painting, crafts gorgeous scenery and fun wordplay with a gentle degree of smugness, easily one of the best modern painters
also magritte: "haha floaty orange boy"
@pupy God, art is so good
@witchfynder_finder much as those two posts are kind of taking the piss, i genuinely adore rene magritte's work and i dont think i could describe how much its influenced and inspired me
@pupy You gotta be able to laugh at what you love~
@witchfynder_finder honestly i find "the art of living" a genuinely funny piece of art, theres something inherently amusing about a dude with a great big orange orb for a head and a tiny face
@witchfynder_finder (theres also just the fact that he himself obviously had a very dry sense of humour about him, what with the whole "this is not a pipe" thing)
@pupy Honestly surrealism in general was just early shitposting, like, if someone posted The Art of Living today but in, like, emoji form or something, it would be The Meme of the Fediverse for at least a weekend
@witchfynder_finder see: that magritte painting of a woman's bust...where her face is her actual bust,
@pupy I love any time they get funky with words
@witchfynder_finder magritte's wordplay game is some of the strongest ive ever seen honestly
@pupy "I'm just gonna go out and do a ton of wordplay
"But without any of the words."
@pupy Aging Magritte: But what if... both?
@Vordus i mean he did loads of "this is not a <x>" paintings
the man liked to hammer the points home,
@pupy reminds me of one of my favorite posts
@presolace oh my god yes I forgot all about this legendary post
