Marcel Caram (-)





Marcel Caram, from Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, in southeastern Brazil, creates digital surreal paintings in Photoshop using his considerable drawing skills.
He discovered Surrealism while still young and was especially drawn to the paintings of Salvador Dalí, René Magritte and De Chirico.
In many of his paintings he adopts the empty desert or beach with distant range of hills, much used by Dali. Caram then peoples this landscape with enigmatic imagery often depicted using saturated colours and smooth graduated tones. He often used typical Dali devices such as a crutch supporting forms, even the burning giraffe.
He exhibits a mastery of perspective.
