MAGICAL REALISM

Magical realism is a style of painting that captures a realistic view of the world while including elements of magic. Sometimes called marvelous realism or fabulism (in reference to fable, myth, and allegory) magical realism refers to both fiction, literature, and visual art which captures the supernatural and magical woven into an otherwise ordinary setting.
