You want to become known? Compose myths about yourself. To birthday of Salvador Dali ofdoes not raise doubts Any more that Salvador Jacinto Dali Domench Cusi Farres (he is just Salvador Dali) was ingenious in mother`s womb. However, before only he spoke about it, but, in process of increase of its popularity and finding of lifetime glory, all admirers of his talent began to speak about it. Began to speak even those who did not see its artworks.
his parents very much wanted to have the son - the Savior therefore called respectively: Salvador in translation from Spanish means “ savior “. And he should rescue their family of great antiquity (the first son who appeared in a family died), but young Dali chose other way.
Its way lay to the world of art and to the abyss of shocking, in a jungle of vanity and in pleasure of narcissism, in morbidity of envy and in a love height. He chose this way and created the world.
The world of the artist by definition is difficult and diverse, is often so original and original that to speak about the artist “ Other-wordly “ became already habitual.
But, one business when about the artist say others, besides, that the artist about the eccentricities also does not suspect - he lives it naturally. Lives as breathes. Other business - deliberate shock value to summon interest. Many people of art sin with it. And it is clear - identity above all.
The name as the trademark, is highly appreciated very much. Sometimes and works - that it is difficult to call works, but the name works wonders. More precisely - money.
These oppositions do not concern to Salvador Dali. It is organic. It personified everything at once. Thanks to the valid talent of the artist, of course.
To be able it is good to draw and become the recognized artist - not same. Before it is necessary to enter the world of art interestingly that you were remembered. Someone tries to represent feats, someone continually shows the “ the best “ the parties of character and soul, someone sincerely believes that the quantity will surely turn into quality in relation to artists … Salvador Dali decided to shock with
public! He began to struggle with common sense resolutely. And results did not keep themselves waiting: it is expelled by their Academies of Arts for impudence, it gets to prison for a while … For the blasphemous words “ I spit on the mother “ traced in one of the pictures, Salvador father forbade it to come back home.
Not to count all its tricks, eccentricities and “ the played tricks “. That he invites Picasso to Spain peculiar: “ Picasso the Spaniard - also I am Spaniard too! Picasso is the genius, and I am a genius too! Picasso is the communist, and I too am not present ! “ That in a gold space suit and sitting in the transparent sphere welcomes gapers of New - York. That movie “ The Wheelbarrow in the " flesh; with Anna Magnani in a leading role is going to remove. And the heroine according to the scenario falls in love with the car.
In a word, genius of surrealism !. A surrealism in painting, a surrealism in design, in perfumery, in fashion, at cinema, in literature, in the human relations … Really not to count everything in one article, but it is possible to mention.
And therefore I want to bring to your attention only some councils from “ 50 magic secrets of skill “ from Salvador Dali.
Secret the first : the artist has to have five various brushes, he works with each of which absolutely in a special way.
