    Art In Music

    Some years ago i bought a CD from a little music store in Omaha, Nebraska. It was a place the collected music from various bands no one has every heard of. I'll admit, I bought it for a dollar, after looking at the cover and band name, figuring that it would be no loss if the...

    Incidentally

    Incidentally, there is a burning giraffe in this picture. Mind, there is a lot of other weird **** going on. But let's not forget the giraffe. Because it's on fire. I have always said that the names an artist gives his/her works goes a long way to giving them character...

    From The Bizarre Realms Of His Psyche

    to a canvas... The BEST surrealist. His work blows me away. I love how there are reaccuring "themes" that pop up too. Like the grasshoppers (one of his fears). The clocks.. elephants, the crutch.. ect. Other things from his dreams.. Here are some of...

    What a nice surprise finding this group!

    Many years ago we spent sunmer holidays in Figueres-Spain. There is a superb museum for Dali, actually the house where he lived many years. It was so amazing. My kids were young and they did not understand most paintings. Well, neither did I. He was a genius in art.

    This Is Just Going To Be A Short One

    Ever since I saw the Metamorphosis of Narcissus I have been enthralled by his work. There's just something about his work that invokes powerful feelings in me. A few years back I went to a Dali exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, it was amazing, there wasn't too many of...

    Middle School

    I think I was in 7th grade, and I had an art class. Well we actually had to make these masks and copy our favorite piece of art. Everyone was doing boring basic things, something about Dali's work completely intrigued me. Ever since then, I have been in love. All throughout...

    Deep

    Went to see the museum in Spain this year, fantastic place. This person was a genius in my mind, how to come to visualising what he painted in his mind fascinates me. Yes, some of his stuff was just plain odd, but it makes you think, where I  think ordinary run of the mill...

    Journey to Dali

    Huge fan of the Dali man!  In fact a few years ago I was with my family visiting St.Petersbur, Florida and new that the museum was a must see for me.  After losing the battle for any sort of ride from my parents who just wanted to bask in the sun all day; I knew what...

    Salvador Dali

    Best artist ever!! Crazy, but very good. Back in 2006, we took our son to Disney World in Florida, and did a day at the Salvador Dali museum. It was so much fun. Some of his pieces are so big, they are 2 floors high. Just imagine that. Where would you hang such a huge piece...

    I must have an experience showing my

    unflinching passion for Salvador Dali, the great Surrealist, he was the antithesis of the Surrealist movement, often shunning parties and distanced himself from the movement. I have visited his gallery/museum in Figueras in Catalonia, near Barcelona. I must say how awestruck I...
