Salvador Dali (1904-1989) 

     In 10th grade, my Art Teacher turned me on to Salvador Dali.  From the first moment I saw his paintings I was mesmerized. Dali transformed the definition of Surrealism, which combined pure psychic automatism expressing the unconscious process of thought, dream and associated realities to include what he called "critical paranoia," a theory that embraced delusion while remaining aware that reason has been deliberately suspended.  With his realistic detail, Dali's paintings describe a hallucinatory reality which is often contradicted by the vision and hallucinatory character his imagery describes.
