I used the keyword imagination to think of today’s artist, which is Salvador Dali. The quite well known painter Salvador Dali is probably the most famous surrealist artist in our history. He is a big part of the reason surrealism caught its stride as an art style after much pushback. His work is incredibly complex and the colors he uses are so perfectly put together. He had an eccentric personality that showed intensely through his work.
Dali is known to be a famous Surrealist and depicting this theme through his paintings and other art works. Most of his works show a sort of dream sequence which he often draws hallucinatory characters. His major contribution to the Surrealist movement is called the “Paranoiac-Critical Method” which is a form of mental exercise of accessing the subconscious parts of the mind to have an artistic inspiration. He used this method to realize the dreams and imagination ha have in his mind, changing the real world the way he wanted and not necessarily what it was. His career, he focused on cubism, futurism, as well as metaphysical painting work, until in 1929, he joined the group of surrealists, and this art movement which he felt a connection to. His fame and notoriety, and talent in the art world, quickly made him a leading force in the Surrealist movement, and he became one of the representatives of the art movement during the 1930s.
