Salvador Dali

Salvador Dali is known for many amazing artworks such as:

swans reflecting elephants - 1937
Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening - 1944
The Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory - 1954

The Spanish artist and surrealist icon is best known for his painting of The Persistence of Memory, also known as the melting clocks. His artwork takes on odd perspectives that seem to violate the rules of reality.

Obviously clocks wouldn't just melt on a landscape in real life. But in his mind they do. His paintings really make you think and begin to alter reality in your own creative mind. His work is a reminder that there are no limits to art and the things that you can conjure up in your own mind.

I will include examples of his artwork, however you should research him as well if you are interested. You can find information about him and his artwork.
