Oil painting description


Salvador Dali. Abstract art. Painted 2016 to 2017 by British artist, Gheorghe Virtosu, b. 1968. Oil painting, 125 cm high by 133 cm wide. 49 X 52 inches.
 
This is an extremely artistic depiction of Salvador Dali who, given that he was from the surrealist school, would approve of. The multicolored centerpiece dominates the abstract painting picture and appears to be larger than life. It overpowers the foreground, not because it is superimposed upon it but because the artist is forcing us to look at the centerpiece and try to understand it before looking at the blue foreground and the painting as a whole.
 
Salvador Dali needs no introduction, but it is necessary to remember that he was a highly imaginative and prolific artist. As an artist, above all else, his life was dominated by his pallet board. This is where Dali placed the colors he needed, and this is also where he experimented with colors he, alone, envisioned. The centerpiece, while nothing short of a beautiful and memorable piece of art, is Dali’s pallet board and his artistic soul. It is given overwhelming space in the oil painting because it is the means by which Dali expressed his thoughts, raw emotions and invested his very soul into. Dali is not pictured in the painting, not even in the most abstract of forms. Nonetheless, who he was is clearly expressed and, importantly, the transference of the paint to the canvas to express an overwhelming feeling, though or emotions, amongst numerous others, has immortalized Salvador Dali.
 
Painters, artists, bond with their pallet board because it is their very life-force and, hence, it overwhelms the painting. More importantly, it gave Dali immortality, not only through his own paintings but also by an abstract painting which pay tribute to him, such as this one does.
