Understanding contemporary fantasy art involves more than appreciating illustrations for movies, books, magazines, and video games. Fantasy art concerns mythological, magical, and supernatural themes. The history of fantasy art has been created by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Leonardo Da Vinci, Salvador Dali and it is therefore surprising that as a genre is does not receive the recognition like other art movements. This genre is often excluded from today's art history books and rarely displayed in high art galleries. This unique style of art, unlike other well known styles, is harder to explain the concept and grasp it as well. Like abstract, it can often be taken and depicted how the onlooker sees it.
