An artistic genius
Eccentric to a fault, with a penchant for provocation and unpredictability, he was first and foremost among the most famous iconoclastic and avant-garde artists of our time.
To this illustrious painter, art traveled well beyond painting. Also an eclectic artist, he had a passion for many disciplines where he would make his mark: interior design, furniture design, literature, fashion, jewelry, advertising, media, fragrance, publishing, and sculpture, among others.
He collaborated with Coco Chanel and Christian Dior in fashion, Peter Brook in theater, the Vogue and Harper's Bazaar magazines, Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock in film, Maurice Béjart for ballet theater set design, Man Ray in photography, Poilâne in pastry, the list goes on.
"Divine Dali," as he called himself, guided us through his works of art and the magic of his world populated with dreamlike, bold and extravagant figures.
