Salvador Dali

One of the most profound artists, Salvador was an astonishing person that won over his audience with his intriguing paintings along with his original thoughts and beliefs.Throughout his life Dali went through a series phases that affected his art:Cubism, Futurism and Metaphysical painting.He later joined the Surrealists in 1929 and his talent for self-publicity rapidly made him the most famous representative of the movement.He converged the Surrealist theory of automatism into his own method that he entitled `critical paranoia’.His paintings idealized a dream like state where he twisted people and objects into a new form of art for the 20th century.He described his pictures as `hand-painted dream photographs’ and had favorite images, such as the human figure with half-open drawers popping out from it, burning giraffes, and watches bent and flowing as if made from melting wax.
In 1937 Dali went to Italy and took-on a new style.A combination of political views and extraordinary designs, Dali was expelled from the Surrealist ranks. He moved to the United States in 1940 until 1955. During this time he painted religious paintings that tuned his mind, body and soul.One of his most famous paintings during this period was The Crucifixion of St John of the Cross that is now in the Glasgow Art Gallery.In addition to the religious paintings, Dali painted sexual images of his wife Gala that he did to keep busy in his spare time.In addition to his sculptures and paintings, Dali wrote a few autobiographies and produced some movies, including one with Alfred Hitchcock.There are now museums in Dali's hometown that holds many of his creations.
