Dali Paintings
Contest Directions: This Sunday is the 104th birthday of a Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali. While his painting skills were influenced by the masters of Renaissance, Dali used a lot of hidden symbolism in his art. For example, in Dali's most famous painting - The Persistence of Memory - the soft watches symbolize Einstein's theory that time is relative and not fixed.

To celebrate the birthday of the world's most famous surrealist painter Salvador Dali, show what his art would be like if he created it these days with a power of Photoshop rather than brushes and paint. Would he be doing advertisements, or maybe even posters for movies? See example 1 , example 2, example 3 , and example 4.
