SALVADOR DALI WAS AHEAD OF HIS TIME ARTISTIC WISE. HE KNEW HOW TO DESCRIBE HIS WORST FEELINGS INTO PAINTINGS AND DRAWINGS. IF YOU LOVE ART YOU ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE YOU WERE THERE WHEN HE MADE THOSE WORKS OF ART AND YOU FEEL ALL THE EMOTIONS OF EACH BRUSH STROKE AND EXPRESSIONS IN HIS WORK. HE IS REALLY AN INSPARATION TO ME.
