Salvador Dalí

​​The life of Salvador Dalí and his artworks are dramatic and dreamy. In his surrealistic world everything was created from his boundless imagination. Dalí was unquestionably one of the greatest artists of our time. His profound surrealist vision and artistic talent produced memorable artworks which nowadays are usually seen only in prestigious museums. Dali's manner and his creative style of revealing the gap between reality and illusion influenced all manner of modern artists. Beyond developing his own symbolic language, Dali elaborated a way to represent the inner mind. His works remain highly contemporary and his influence on art development is far-reaching.
