I would say that “obsession” is an understatement. Salvador Dali’s artwork hits my soul. His themes and projections were years advanced for his time, even in this current moment. Once you look past the absurdity or surreal aspect of his art, you realize that this man had an uncanny ability to portray political, social, and historical analogies that analyze things “to the next level.” Dali was larger than life, there is no comparison to what he has contributed to society with his images and creations. The level of depth and raw emotions are almost unbearable in his works. His paintings are parallel to my dreams, the images make me feel as if I have been “there” before. I have always claimed, “I dated Dali in my past life, but ended up marrying Magritte.” =)
