Lost Art Gallery is excited to feature a collection of lithographs by Salvador Dali at the December 6th First Friday Art Walk, from 5-9pm. The gallery will be exhibiting Spanish and French lithograph editions, signed by the artist. Join us for refreshments during the event to view a prominent collection of Dali’s surrealist lithographs.
Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was born in Figueras, Spain. As a surrealist painter and printmaker, Dali is best known for his explorations of subconscious imagery. From his melting clock to the burning giraffe, Dali rallied against the tradition of pre-meditated painting, preferring to draw upon his subconscious mind to bring imagery to life. Having left art school before taking his final exam, Dali estranged himself from his father and took up a fishing shack on Port Lligat. This was a location that would figure prominently both in his real life and in his work. He felt that passing an exam was insulting as a means of determining his position as an artist. As a student he developed a vast number of artistic styles and showed great technical skills as a painter.
