Salvador Dali'

Salvador Dali'... my favorite artist! When I was little I went to his museum and I was so inspired. I was so fantasized by the many unique things he came up with. I instantly fell in love with his passion for art. He was born on May 11, 1904 in the town of Figueres, close to the French border in Catalonia, Spain. He attended drawing school as a teen and discovered modern painting on a vacation. His mother died when he was 16 and his father then married his deceased wife's sister. After this, he moved to Madrid, Spain and went to the School of Fine Arts. Art was his life and he didn't need anything else. He painted one of his most famous master pieces in 1931, The Persistence of Memory, which shows images of soft, melting pocket watches. Salvador died at the age of 84. Though, his work is still alive to me. To me he lives on forever. He was an inspiration to everyone who came across his work and I wish he was still here today to make more spectacular art. But things always happen for a reason. I still remember that day I came across his work. I won't forget it. He's inspired me that even though things may come across hard I have to keep working hard to really get what I want. Not much people tend to inspire me, and though some have, I think he's the one who's actually stuck throughout for a long time. His art is so very unique and I've never seen something more lively and surreal. I wish I could draw and paint masterpieces like him! I'm not much of an artist though. The best I can draw is stick people. When I was at that museum I bought a little cube that I could flip and it would show his art. I don't know what happened to it but I sure wish I had it with me now. :) 

This one is The Persistence of Memory. One of my favorites! 
This one was so very interesting! I just can't understand it! 
This one was on the cube. I would always look at it because it was so unique! 
This one I love! I can't understand it, though
Well, what do you guys think of this amazing artist? To me he is someone special who marked the history of art
