Salvador Dali Biography

Birthday: May 11, 1904
Birthplace: Spain

Salvador Dali was the top Surrealist of all time. Surrealism explores dreamy art that explores the subconscious, and irrational elements, of the human mind. His work is still prized by some as some of the greatest existing modern art.

Salvador Dali - The Early Years

Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali Y Domenech was born in Figueras, Spain and was educated at the School of Fine Arts in Madrid for a while but was eventually expelled for organizing his fellow students to rebel against the school's authorities. A year later he headed to Paris where he met Pablo Picasso.

Salvador Dali Takes on the Art Scene

There wasn't much that Salvador Dali couldn't do. He found success in painting, sculpture and even filmmaking - he even designed a dream sequence in Alfred Hitchcock's movie Spellbound. In 1939, his political opinions got him in a little trouble and he had to flee to the US where he wrote, worked on theatrical productions, illustrated books and painted.

Salvador Dali's Muse

Unlike a lot of other famous artists, Dali was a one-woman kind of guy. In 1958 Dali returned to Spain and married Gala - his wife, muse, model, agent and only love. Salvador Dali painted tons of pictures of her, like the one shown in this article.

    Sims 4 for sure! I've played Sims 3 for a while now, and bought Sims 4 while it was on sale on Origin, and I must say I adored Sims 3, but now I find myself always on the Sims 4! I love the building, it's much smoother and slick and now that there's toddlers all we need is pets and seasons! Not to mention the graphics are much more colourful and it's just a fabulous game over-all. But, I compeltly recommend Sims 4, even though Sims 3 is still a wonderful game.
