Mário Cesariny

Considered the most representative artist of Portuguese Surrealism, Mario Cesariny adopted an aesthetic attitude of constant experimentation in his work and he practice a technique of writing and (un)painting widely disseminated among Surrealists. He also introduces a technique called "exquisite corpse", which involves the construction of a work by three or four artits in a creative work chain: each one continues, in real time, the creativity of the last one, knowing only part of what he did.
