Dalí is one of the most iconic surreal creators in the history of the art world. His extravagant nature and the fanciful imagery that surrounded both his work and his life made him one of the best known and most controversial twentieth-century artists.
His artistic style and personal exuberance was strange even for Surrealists, through he was influenced by realism, impressionism, pointillism, cubism, fauvism, purism and futurism. To craft an idiosyncratic world with his art, he drew inspiration from Velázquez to contemporary pop culture, and he also showed a deep understanding of what it means to be a successful working artist.
He created a paranoid-critic method as a catalyst to channel what he was thinking combined with rational ideas that seemed unrelated. He attempted to create objects and images that could never be part of his reality. He attempted to project his unconscious through real, critical, and lucid images. He would use his phobias to create chaotic and enigmatic works. By juxtaposing symbols like someone suffering from paranoia would, he would change the perception of reality. André Breton considered Dalí’s technique as a tool to use in painting, poetry, fashion, film, sculpture, and creative endeavors in general.
We are absolutely excited Dalí to be our great mentor on the Moon. No one else like him!
