André Masson was born on January 4, 1896, in Balagny-sur-Thérain, a town just north of Paris. As a child Andre spent a great amount of time in nature which he drew inspiration from that is shown in his later art creations throughout his career. He is a former French surrealist painter & graphic designer who fought in World War I. Painting dreamscapes of writhing mythological figures and tortured natural forms, André Masson combined the two main visual techniques of Surrealism, biomorphic abstraction, and automatic techniques. One of the first painters to embrace Andre Breton’s Surrealist theories, Masson channeled the subconscious and explored the themes of sexuality, violence, metamorphosis, and death that were central to the movement. His paintings reveal the inner workings of the mind through the exploration of dreams, desires, and paranoia.
