I pass this mural every time I head to Battery Park on the bike trail, and I love the surrealist landscape!  There have been quite a few shows recently highlighting surrealism: The Magritte exhibit at MOMA, “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” at the Met, “Surrealism and the Dream” at the Museo Thyssen in Madrid, and the current exhibit at The Philadelphia Museum of Art, “The Surrealists: Works from the Private Collection,” to name a few.  This 2013 mural by the Spanish graffiti artist Belin is a great fit for that rediscovered art trend.
