Dali - A Mad Man


Have you ever heard the name Dali? He is probably one of the most famous artists in the world. Even if you haven't, I bet you have seen his paintings somewhere before.
Talking of Salvador Dali, you would remember his painting of melting clocks. Large clocks hanging from a branch and a table, like liquid candy. It could be the gateway to his weird, curious and unnatural world. Dali also made a lot of sculptures. Jumping out of his paintings, they are much more impressive, and invite you to the depth of his eccentric world


Dali also made a lot of sculptures. Jumping out of his paintings, they are much more impressive, and invite you to the depth of his eccentric world.

Salvador Dali was a talented child and interested in art. Fortunately, his family encouraged his early interest in art. He never took any final examinations and left school early. He moved away from his family and later met the most important woman in his life - Gala. With her help he exhibited shows over the most of Europe and the United States. During the 1940s and early 50s he lived in the USA. In 1955 he returned to Spain and lived there until he died in January 23rd 1989.

“Homage to Newton”. A man with open head and abdomen might look grotesque, but it hides Dali’s strong message. An “open -mind” and an “open-heart” are very important qualities. If Newton hadn't had them, the law of gravity would not have been found. This sculpture symbolizes the necessity of being unprejudiced and flexible to discover something new. With this sculpture Salvador Dali made a connection between art and science which most people don't see.

Now it’s time to go to the “Dali in Singapore Exhibition”. Open your mind, open your heart and open your eyes to a new world. It's a must to see his strange art. By good fortune the exhibition is free at outdoor venues like UOB Plaza in Raffles Place, Wheelock Place and the Opera Gallery at Ngee Ann City in Orchard Road.
