Works by one of the most iconic figures in art history, Salvador Dali will take centre stage at the Conference Hall in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), United Arab Emirates from 11th February until 22nd April 2018. The exhibition sponsored by one of the leading banks in the UAE, Emirates NBD will showcase original works by the great master, a first for the region and a milestone for the Middle Eastern art scene. Under the orchestration of Alpha Soul, an art and cultural development company based in the U.A.E, the one of a kind exhibition will feature lithographs, photographs and original paintings created by Dalí in his timeless style and fare all sourced from worldwide private collections from across the world.
The exhibition reveals the spontaneity and creative consciousness of Dalí, from which he established masterpieces. “My philosophy is that of a man who works and plays at the same time, a man who thinks and acts, whose whole life is only the elaboration of his thoughts and who’s main thought is constantly expressed by the game.” Said Salvador Dalí
about his masterpieces.
One of many star pieces of the exhibition will be “Shower of Jasmine”, an exclusive oil on canvas painting that was first unveiled to the world in 1954 in New York City at Carstairs Gallery. Besides some of Dalí’s greatest paintings, photographs of the Spanish artist, taken by close friend and specialist of the master, Robert Descharnes (1926 – 2014), will also be revealed at the exhibition.
