Biomorphism

Home » Glossary » Biomorphism

Biomorphism refers to the use of organic shapes and forms in art, often inspired by the shapes of living organisms such as plants, animals, and microorganisms. Biomorphism was a key element of Surrealist art, and was used to create dreamlike and often unsettling images that challenged traditional notions of representation. Artists such as Joan Miró and Max Ernst were known for their use of biomorphic forms in their artwork.
