“A flamboyant painter and sometime writer, sculptor and experimental film-maker, Salvador Dali was probably the greatest Surrealist artist, using bizarre dream imagery to create unforgettable and unmistakable landscapes of his inner world.”
Dali publicly wore his badge of surrealism but at the same time he did not refute fascists. This contradiction baffled other surrealists, causing disputes among them.
“Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.”
Over the course of his career, Dali completed over 1700 prints. The undercurrent of all of his work was his immense attention to detail.
Among his paintings, he also sculpted, made experimental films, photographer and even a jeweler.
Surrealism is the expansion of art beyond reality, and above everything Dalí knew this best.
The legacy of surrealist Dali translates through generations and arguably he is the most notable of his kind.
