Fantastic art is a broad and loosely defined art genre . [1] It is not restricted to a specific school of artists, geographical location or historical period. It can be characterised by subject matter – which portrays non-realistic, mystical, mythical or folkloric subjects or events – and style, which is representational and naturalistic, rather than abstract - or in the case of magazine illustrations and similar, in the style of graphic novel art such as manga .

Fantasy has been an integral part of art since its beginnings, [2] but has been particularly important in mannerism , magic realist painting, romantic art , symbolism , surrealism and lowbrow . In French, the genre is called le fantastique , in English it is sometimes referred to as visionary art , grotesque art or mannerist art . It has had a deep and circular interaction with fantasy literature .

The subject matter of Fantastic Art may resemble the product of hallucinations, and Fantastic artist Richard Dadd spent much of his life in mental institutions. Salvador Dalí famously said: "the only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad". [3] Some recent Fantastic Art draws on the artist's experience, or purported experience, of hallucinogenic drugs .
