Eileen Agar: Surrealist Pioneer

Sep 05, 2023

We have another fabulous famous artist workshop coming up this month.... Eileen Agar: A Surrealist Pioneer

🍏  Eileen Agar was a British-Argentinian painter and photographer who was associated with the Surrealist movement. She was born in Buenos Aires in 1899 to an American mother and a Scottish father. She moved to London with her family when she was 12 years old.

🍏 Agar studied art at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. She was influenced by the Surrealists, who believed in the power of the unconscious mind to create art. She began to create paintings and collages that were full of strange and fantastical imagery. Her paintings are often vibrant and colourful, and they feature a variety of different materials, including paint, collage, and found objects.

🍏  She was a prolific artist, and she produced a wide body of work over the course of her career. She exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions around the world. She was also a member of the Surrealist Group in London.

🍏  Agar died in 1991 at the age of 91. She is considered one of the most important Surrealist artists of her generation.
