Salvador Dalí was born in 1904 in Figueras (Catalonia, Spain) and studied at the Academy of San Fernando in Madrid. He is considered one of the most creative painters of the century and an important surrealist. However, he was also a writer, a sculptor, a set designer, and an actor. His works revolve around the subjects of space, ecstasy, fever, and religion and focus on disharmonious and dissonant elements. Salvador Dalí died in 1989 in the town where he was born.
