"...JUST BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW THE MEANING OF MY ART, DOES NOT MEAN IT HAS NO MEANING..." S.D. Salvador Dali
NOMBRE: Salvador Dalí Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí nació el 11 de mayo de 1904 en Figueras, un pueblo pequeño de España. Es conocido como pintor, escultor, y escritor. Dali hizo muchos cuadros, estatuas, pinturas, y obras de literatura. Salvador Dali was probably the greatest Surrealist artist, using bizarre dream imagery to create unforgettable and unmistakable landscapes of his inner world
Surrealism Surrealism was a means of reuniting conscious and unconscious realms of experience so completely, that the world of dream and fantasy would be joined to the everyday rational world in "an absolute reality, a surreality. Influenced by the theories of the pioneer of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, the images found in surrealist works are as confusing and startling as those of dreams.
Surrealist Movement In November of 1929, he joined the Surrealist movement, a group of writers, artists, and filmmakers who were responding to the horrors of World War I by trying to find new ways of thinking and seeing the world. Pintó sus imágenes, según sus propias palabras, inmerso en un delirio erótico. Rinoceronte de Dalí
Gala Dalí His wife’s death in 1982 devastated Dalí. Already unable to paint for extended periods of time, he spent his last six years in seclusion and died January 23, 1989. While the last two decades of his life saw popular and major exhibitions around the world, Dalí would have to wait to be accepted as a serious artist in art critic and art history circles.
His Legacy Dalí se murió el 23 de enero 1989. A decade after his death, however, two major museums (the museum Dalí founded in Spain, and the museum in St. Petersburg) are dedicated to his work and draw millions of visitors each year—so many visitors, in fact, that smaller museums have sprung up hoping to capitalize on Dalí’s growing appeal. Salvador Dali is the only known artist who had two museums dedicated exclusively to his works at lifetime.
