Magic realism is the style of fine arts which uses realism in combination with a slight seeming aberration of the artist’s eyesight while depicting daily scenes. One of the founders of magic realism - Albert Carel Villink from Holland – changed the term “magic realism” that he disliked into “imaginary realism” to describe his own creativity.
