Salvador Dali - Surrealism

Lobster Telephone, Salvador Dali, 1938, 

Salvador Dali’s name has become synonymous with Surrealism, the artistic style reminiscent of the vivid and bizarre dreamscapes of the subconscious mind. Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain, Dali is best known for his melting clocks. His most famous work, The Persistence of Memory, is said to represent the idea that time is a flexible entity, and everything can be destroyed by it.

The Persistence of Memory, Salvator Dali, 1931

Dali’s painting style was meticulous, as he studied classical, renaissance painting techniques in art school (before he was expelled). His realistic painting technique contributed to his surrealist style, a school of painting focused on the bizarre, unbridled imagination of the subconscious mind.

  • Clavusin

    Generally speaking, antifungal drugs can work in two ways: by directly killing fungal cells or by preventing fungal cells from growing and thriving. But how do they do this? Antifungal drugs target structures or functions that are necessary in fungal cells but not in human cells, so they can fight a fungal infection without damaging your body’s cells. Two structures that are commonly targeted are the fungal cell membrane and the fungal cell wall. Both of these structures surround and protect the fungal cell. When either one becomes compromised, the fungal cell can burst open and die.

  • Best Health Keto

    Ketogenic diet is all the rage right now, but one has to understand that it is not one of your typical diets. Many people also take it to be one of ‘crash diets’ and doubt its very credibility. It is okay to harbour certain reservations about a diet, but what is not okay is misinformation. Majority of Keto dieters do end up gaining weight post Keto due to certain reasons, lack of discipline, lack of mindful eating, no calculations, etc, to name a few.
