Episode 77: Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali was one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century. His flamboyant mustache, eccentric personality, and artistic passion combined creating a truly Avant Garde man.

Get your mustache ready and join Chloe and Johanna in exploring the world of Salvador Dali.

Persistence of Memory, 1931
The technical training, psychological influences, mixed together with Dali’s personal symbolism create complex pieces that usually leave the viewer questioning  

Swans Reflecting Elephants, 1937
His “hand painted dream photographs” confuse and delight viewers.

Besides painting Salvador Dali also worked in sculpture, graphic design, and other visual arts. Not even the world of Hollywood was beyond his reach. In 1945, Dali collaborated with Disney on an animated piece called Destino. The project was abandoned but in 2003 was completed.
