Salvador Dali is one of the most popular artists in the world, known for his lavish lifestyle, gravity-defying moustache and bizarre art. This book tells the story of Dali's life and explores the meaning of his Surrealist paintings. It goes beyond his fine art practice and discusses his venture into the commercial world from his extravagant jewellery to his cheeky design for the Chupa Chups lollipops. Surrealism is revealed as a way of life; illustrations bring to life the extraordinary Dream Ball at the Coq Rouge, his fabulous home at Port Lligat and his underwater fantasy at the World Fair's Surrealist pavilion. Fun, provoking and endlessly frustrating, Dali is brought under the spotlight. Catherine Ingram brings her specialized knowledge to the book, while Andrew Rae, an award-winning illustrator, vividly portrays the text.

“Beautifully surreal”

A concise and palatable introduction to the madness, narcissism and surreal talent of this iconic, celebrity artist. Ingram balances text and imagery wonderfully, never making it too word heavy, this achievement means... More
