The Dali Moustache

Salvador Dali is the most famous surrealist painter in the world. Smart, sharp and bright, was the artist for the artists. His mustache said much of himself: Dali was a genius of originality and authenticity. Also, it was very imaginative, and had much desire to show a behavior unusual and grandiose, in order to draw attention. Dali was born in Figueres (Catalonia) in 1904. In his adult life, he moved to Port Lligat with his wife and Muse Gala; but he also lived in Barcelona, Madrid, Paris and the USA.UU.

He was a versatile artist, who was not only limited to painting: he used to make sculptures, and also became famous for his contributions to fashion, theater and photography. His pictorial skills are often attributed to flu by masters of the Renaissance. In 1921 moved to the residence of students the school of fine arts in Madrid (but he was expelled in 1926 when, in the final examinations, said that nobody on the Faculty was competent enough to examine him). Ten years later, Dali was already the genius that today we all know: had already collaborated in the famous short film Bunuel; already be had officially joined the surrealist group in Paris; and he had already painted what would become his most famous work, the persistence of memory, which today is one of the most important symbols of surrealism. After a few years, Dali was expelled from the surrealist movement because many believed that it had become too commercial and that he only wanted to draw attention.

And perhaps so, because some time later titled his autobiography diary of a genius. Even so, he continued exhibiting his surrealist works around the world. In 1940 the master painting evolved into a new style, more concentrated on Science, religion and history. l and Gala escaped from World War II and marched to the United States (1940-1948). At this time, was introduced in a classic period: he painted a series of 19 paintings, which stressed El Torero Hallucinogen, the discovery of America by Cristobal Colon and the sacrament of the? latest dinner. sta was a very important stage for the artist. In 1949, Dali returned to his beloved Catalonia, where he spent the rest of his life. At 74 he inaugurated the famous Theatre Museum in Figueras. At the end of his career, moved to other cultural fields besides painting: experimented with marketing campaigns or new media. For example, designed the Chupa Chups logo and created the advertising of their song for Eurovision Song Contest 1969. Gala died on June 10, 1982. After his death, Dali’s health began to idle. He moved from Figueres to the castle which had bought for his wife in Pubol and died there. In November 1988 he had a heart attack and died on January 23, 1989, a second heart attack. Dali will always be a banner. It is unique, a genius, is simply, Dali.
