What is Salvador Dalí Art?
Born in Spain in 1904, Salvador Dalí developed his iconic style in the early 1920s. He joined the Surrealist group in 1929, marking the beginning of his most influential period. His work was known for its dreamlike quality of unrealistic imagery. He combined subjects that would normally never exist in the same space. A balanced mix of playful and cerebral, he dared to explore hallucinatory images and symbols. We have curated a surrealistic collection of canvas prints from our resident fine artists, several of whom share a similarly dreamy approach. Add the ultimate conversation piece to your home with surrealist, Dalí-inspired wall art.
Classic Salvador Dalí Prints
Perhaps Dalí’s most well-known work of art, The Persistence of Memory was painted in 1931. Almost every art aficionado is familiar with the image of the melting pocket watch. The observation on the relationship between space and time is seemingly obvious. However, while it was assumed that Dalí was inspired by Einstein’s theory of relativity, in reality he wanted to convey a soft Camembert melting in the sun. Regardless of his intent, this painting has captured the imagination of onlookers since its creation. Elevate your home with one of our vibrant renditions of this iconic work of art. This painting will work in any room in your interior.
A Portrait of the Master Himself
If you want to celebrate Dalí directly, why not hang an image of his memorable visage? With his eccentric mustache and intense facial expressions, Dali was practically a work of art himself. He styled his outfits and facial hair in a similarly surrealistic fashion. Choose a piece of wall art that shows off Dalí in a more literal way. Not only will this canvas print act as an eye-catching centerpiece, but it will surely prompt a lively discussion about the king of surrealism.
Combining Eye-Catching Styles
Surrealism isn’t the only style of art that’s trending in 2023. Pop art is also having a significant resurgence. This brightly-colored, contemporary style will add a lighthearted look to your home. Choose a pop art-style image that includes a portrait of Dalí for a stunning combination of artistic eras. Pop art frequently included abstract portraits of celebrities. Dalí is the perfect subject for this fun, vibrant style of artwork. Hang an oversized pop art print over your desk or workspace for an instant boost of creative stimulation.
