Dalí was born in 1904 in Figueres, Spain which is near the Pyrenees Mountains. 

Surrounded by this landscape as he was growing up, Dalí often included the scenery he saw as a boy in his paintings.

Dalí made paintings, sculptures and films about the dreams he had.

He painted melting clocks and floating eyes, clouds that look like faces and rocks that look like bodies.

Sounds weird right?

Think about what your paintings would look like if you painted your dreams? 

Certainly, they would be pretty weird too!


Famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud influenced surreal artists.

To clarify, a psychoanalyst is a doctor who studies the human mind and tries to understand it.

The conscious and the unconscious part are the two sections of the mind. Most importantly, the unconscious mind is where memories are stored.

The conscious mind is what we use to make decisions every day. For example, like whether we walk or ride a bike to school. 

However, most of the time, we are not aware of our unconscious mind.

Sometimes the memories stored there get mixed up in our dreams. and in short, this is what Dalí tried to paint. 


This was an art movement where painters made dream-like scenes. Above all, they showed situations that would be bizarre or impossible in real life. 

In conclusion, Dali is most famously known for the popularity of surrealism.
