Salvador Dali

Salvador Dalí (Spain 1904-1989) was an eclectic and eccentric and curious about every form of surrealist experimentation: painting, sculpture, photography, cinema and jewellery. He was famous for his luxurious lifestyle, grandiose behaviour, and oriental clothes declaring his Moorish ancestry. Both the public and the press were attracted to his unusual behaviour as well as his art which used various surrealist symbols from a melting watch, elephant and egg to a sea urchin, a memory from his childhood which he caught in the sea near Cadaqués. In his jewellery, his singular works were made out of gold, platinum, precious stones, pearls and coral malachite to give symbolist colour and shape referencing mythology as well as religion seen in his famous Madonna of Port-Lligat pendent.
