Dali was born in Figueras, a small town near to where my family live and close to a beach that we regularly visit. He has always been deeply rooted in the area, his father’s house, his house in Portlligat, his museum in Figueras. Dali is an internationally renowned artist and a very important figure within surrealism. His works are between fear and passion. He seems to some a little crazy but at the same time, I feel he is a person with a lot of wisdom.
The children and I wanted to explore Dali and his work further, getting deeper into it and then re-creating some of his wonderful images. – Manuela Franjou
We were inspired by these quotes from the artist….
‘That I do not know the meaning of my art does not mean that I do not have it’
‘The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad’… Dali
