In August I went to the Dali exhibition at the Moco. It was not a big exhibition but still gave an interesting insight into Dali’s art. When it comes to art there are always certain names that are mentioned as references for something special.
Dali is often the reference to surrealist art at its best or most interesting, whatever you prefer. For me Dali is the eccentric artist who crossed many lines yet never lost his appeal. Whether his work was “art-for-art” or commercial there has always been something about his work.
The best way to discover what Dali might mean to you is to read a bit about him and look up all his works in your own time. An exhibition is really rewarding. The scope of his work is beyond what you would expect. The exhibition at the Moco was fun.
If ever you feel like exploring something weird to break the daily grind, take a look at Dali’s work and enjoy. He really did things his way…
