DALÍ THE SCULPTOR
Salvador Dalí was not only a painter, but also a multifaceted and eclectic artist in the true sense of the word. He has been widely recognized as a sculptor, writer, illustrator, director, jewelry designer and much more.
The passion and overwhelming desire to express himself with sculpture became a constant in his life. He was particularly interested in sculpture from 1934 until 1987.
Dalí was fascinated by this artistic technique and conceived a series of original models to be transformed into surreal sculptures and objects.
In this way his creative genius was able to manifest himself in three-dimensionality, transforming into sculptures those which remain among the most famous and beloved iconographic images created during his life.
The artworks are made of bronze, using the lost wax casting technique. This technique consists in creating a wax model and using it to make a mold in which to pour the molten bronze.
