Salvador Dalí

Spanish 🇪🇸 1904 - 1989

Salvador Dalí was a Spanish painter, sculptor, photographer, and best known artist of the Surrealist movement. His technically skilled, detailed paintings explore Surrealist themes such as the subconscious, dreams, religion, and sexuality. His work was a big influence for pop art, and still influences artists to this day.

Dalí's older brother, also named Salvador, passed away as an infant just nine months before he was born. His parents thought he was his brother reincarnated and gave him the same name.
