SALVADOR DALÍ

Sculptor, engraver, scriptwriter, writer, leading figure of the surrealist movement and above of all, most famous painter of the twentieth century

 

Salvador Dali, a Catalan of Spanish nationality, never ceases to captivate us, to teach us and to surprise us!

Interested in science, technology, architecture, psychoanalysis and philosophy, he has created a body of work that is both accessible and poetic.

Internationally recognized as a multidisciplinary artist with a unique style, and as a virtuoso of image and communication, this great Master has contributed immensely to the arts of the twentieth century.

His work is timeless and is embedded in the collective memory. This makes him one of the most timely artists who, still to this day, moves crowds.

By exhibiting the works of the Master of Surrealism in their own particular style, La Girafe en feu ensures that Dalí’s genius, madness, humor, and his passion for science are brought to life in the public sphere.
