- Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Iconic realism in Art
As you gaze upon the art by Dali, below, you will note that he uses iconic realism in most of his artistic renderings. He will place a recognizable figure in a position in which this figure is not expected to exist. Through his placement of the figure in this unrealistic setting, he creates a realism that brings awareness of an aspect of culture that needs reformation in some way.
