HIS is name synonymous with surrealism. His works have inspired generations and his paintings are viewed with as much awe as they are with bemusement. Salvador Dali was a skilled Spanish painter, Sculptor, Filmmaker and photographer. His painting, images, statues and films have ignited the imagination of thousands.

His often bizarre works of art bear little resemblance to classical art. Yet, The quality of his work and the skill with which he executed has led to him being compared with the masters of the Renaissance.
Known for his flamboyance and his flair for the dramatic, Dali was immediately recognized by his thin, long moustache. He was famous for his love of all things excessive – something that translated to the canvas and all his other works. The artist, whose works can be seen all over the world today, often attributed his fondness for extravagance to his ancestors who, he claims, were descended from the Moors.
