Hello Dali!

"Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing."
-Salvador Dali

Text From Salvador Dali Online

Salvador Dali [1904-1989] was born on May 11th, 1904 in Figueras, a little village in the province of Gerona in Spain.

It is the favorable light of Cadaques that created in Dali as a child an irresistable vocation of painter that would permeate every work of the artist. At first an impressionnist, with a pallette rich in colors, he discovered cubism in 1921 and then formed friendships which influenced his intellectual and artistic evolution thereafter.

In 1929, Dali encountered Gala, the woman that would be his companion and his inspiration. Under her influence he fully opened himself to her own universe, through Surrealism, and rejected hesitations and prejudices which hindered his creative power.

Dali's passion for grand metaphysical, religious and scientific themes underlied this inspiration. Fascinated by the human adventure, he was the prophet of his age. He loved to probe the irrational and the subconscious.

Dali was not only a Painter but an Artist. His Art is filled with questions that his intellect "The Only Master of Space and Time" asks about the Age of Transition in which he lived.

Exhibited in the most prestigious museums of the world, distinguished by the highest academies, Dali lived as an ascetic at the Chateau de Pubol and in the Museum of Figeras after the death of Gala in 1982.

What a surreal wingding. I'm concerned about the melting fan, though.

I love Dali-- Gala was his muse and abuser, he was addicted to her, I guess. His museum in FL is so worth a visit. He was a genius on so many levels. he pondered everything and was wild about perfumes--he developed a few before he died, and his perfume company lives on.
I believe he was responsible for the Dream sequence in the grest Hitchcock movie "Spellbound"
he was one of those "everywhere, into everything" kind of guys.
