Spain, Cadaques & Dali

    I went to Spain this summer, and I got the chance to explore places I had never visited before.. it was amazing to see how much Spain has to offer outside of its major cities: Madrid and Barcelona. By accident I ended up traveling with an amazing group, and we visited what is considered as Dali's trail in Spain. We went to see the museum in Figueras, and the amount of original artwork it's in possession of is just insane. I had never seen so many pieces by Dali in my life, and so diverse in medium... he really experimented with everything from sketching, sculpting, painting, scaling, etc... he was a mad genius I believe, and I have always been intrigued by this character... After Figueras, we went to a town by the sea called Cadaques where supposedly Dali and friends of his such as Picasso used to hang out... I loved the place, such amazing food... and a beautiful ride... nice scenery

the museum's architecture


only Dali knows what this is about


Jesus Christ ?


this drawing (white) only makes snese if you add a metal cilinder and look at the reflection, its a skull ... :)



this installation was only complete if you climbed the stairs in the center of the room and looked through a cilinder, at that exact point in space, the lips, nose, eyes (the frames) and even hair come into place and a Marilyn Monroe face emerged... so cool



interesting


my favorite painting... these guys below have the same position, weird.
