Glen Tarnowski is the Founder of Modern Allegorism which is a school of fine art in which the artist uses contemporary elements in an allegorical style to communicate a positive and uplifting message to the viewer. The term was first used in print in a book published in 2007 titled Tarnowski: Modern Allegories about the work of artist Glen Tarnowski. Tarnowski coined the term to describe a style of art that communicated to a modern world in the same way that Renaissance artists communicated values, ethics and morality to the largely illiterate population of the time.--Wikipedia
Why Modern Allegorism is not Surrealism?
That is correct! Surrealism was an art style created to capture our sub-conscious state and dreams. Modern Allegories focus is on tangible, everyday life experiences and realities, ones hopes, desires and aspirations. Modern Allegorism is encouraging, uplifting and always presents a positive life affirming message through common elements to forge a symbolic poem of hope, love and faith by God's grace to see our goals manifest. It requires "an Artistic exercise of the Mind and Soul".
