My character in mock trial is very interested in Salvador Dali, and since the other team tends to take cheap shots, I figured I best do my homework on Dali.

Dali was probably the most instrumental figure int he surrealistic art movement. His art is in many ways the artistic parallel to Freud. He based many of his idea off of dreams and the "unconscious". He believed strongly in symbolism and reoccuring themes such as elephants and clocks.

"I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait."

-Salvador Dali
