    Never heard that.

    Though, surrealism was partly inspired by the writings of Freud and the subconscious so I wouldn't be surprised if he used his own dreams as a source of inspiration.

    He used bulletism and other techniques to come up with images quite a bit.

    dex, what material have you read on him? any suggested books? or, have you done all of your research on websites?

    and, what do you think he meant by this quote?:

    "The secret of my influence has always been that it remained secret."

    is he saying that others he's had an influence on are reluctant to admit it, or that he has never shared what truly influences him?

    Or that he's influenced by stuff, but he's not overtly sure what those influences are? Or a play on the "secret of my success" phrase?

    LOL.

    perhaps not every painting, but (some of) his paintings were inspired by his own dreams. i forget where i read that. his dreams may not have been the only source, but definitely a part of it.

    yea, the shallow talentless hacks.

    The Persistence of Memory: A Biography of Dali - Meredith Etherington-Smith

    Skimmed through this at the library months ago.

    But yea, Google searches/Wikipedia make up the bulk of my knowledge.

    Dunno.

    Given his character, i'd assume the former.

    Dude was an egomaniac.

    I absolutely suck at drawing and painting.

    I can see things vividly in my mind, but I just can't get them onto canvas or paper. My lack of patience probably plays a huge role.

    Yeah.

    Dali said that his best ideas came to him while he was drifting off, which is why he had the system of dropping something loud when he fell asleep so he could wake up with his ideas still fresh in his mind.

    What about if he didn't have dreams the second he fell asleep? He was probably painting the hallucinations he was having from all the lack of sleep.

    Ah yes! Celestial Coronation in the year of 1951.

    I almost forgot I even made this.

    And, what a mighty fine site that is for my works! I may have to replace some of these I've put up with selections from there!

    The word "dream" is used so frequently in my painting titles that it would be no mystery that I likely drew from my own for inspiration.

    What I'm saying is that you shouldn't dare imply that the creative ruminations of your banal Bruce Wayne comic book mind can even hope to begin a rivalry with the Immortal Master's daring and provocative visionariness... You expect me to just splash the raw primitiveness upon the canvas with no distillation?

    I love $$$ and was looking to make a living off of these creations, so of course I tempered it somewhat for more mainstream audiences.

    "Tame" isn't always a bad thing. I love the world I create. It reminds me of the first surrealist other than myself and Luis Buñuel who I fell in love with, David Lynch. A pleasant and tranquil surface with an ugly underbelly boiling underneath.



    Why do you say that?
