Postmodernism is an attitude rather than a movement. In the latter half of the 20th century, there has been mounting evidence of the failure of modernism. Postmodernism is the renewal of modernism and modernists. Art movements, styles and schools regardless of when they have occurred, have always been distinguished by similarities of styles, technique, subject matter or purpose. Surrealism, for example, is indebted to dreams and the imagination, the cubists fractured the subject matter of their works into geometric shapes but the postmoderns have not so many similarities or unifying purpose except for their exhaustion of  ideas and their lack of originality. When compared to other movements of the 20th century they don’t seem to be able to do anything new.

In the era of modernism  Salvador Dali is one of the greatest and famous artists. On the other hand, it seems that Jean Baudrillard has had a significant influence  on postmodern art and has emphasized  the possibilities of new forms of creativity.
