Artist Bio

During the Covid lockdowns in 2020, client Danny participated in the online art programs that Bayley House offered. Staff did educational sessions on various famous artists such as Salvador Dali. Danny discussed the very prominent facial features that Dali is known for – his long moustache and his very big expressive eyes. Dali was an eccentric and left a legacy of the most fascinating dreamlike paintings. Danny initially did a free drawing of Dali’s portrait and realistically captured Dali’s prominent facial features. Danny then decided to do a large canvas painting of Dali based on his original drawing. The eccentricity of Dali’s life and work has been discussed in our sessions and Danny visually captured this with the use of prominent hard lines and circles (eyes) in the portrait painting. This portrait embodies the essence of Dali’s personality and life.
