Salvador Dalí’s penchant for juxtaposing the extraordinary with the mundane created surreal compositions that challenge perceptions, inviting viewers to explore the intricate interplay between the conscious and the subconscious. With a new venture from Samsung, fans can do so all from the comfort of their living room.
Samsung’s Art Store, an innovative platform tailored for The Frame owners, has partnered with Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí to introduce 12 iconic works by Salvador Dalí to the displays. This collaboration seeks to transport Dalí’s surrealistic brilliance to the accessible channels of digital screens, appealing to art enthusiasts and The Frame users alike.
The collection features notable artworks such as The Persistence of Memory, The Temptation of St. Anthony, and Swans Reflecting Elephants. These pieces have been curated from various reputable sources, including Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí and other institutions and private collections worldwide.
“These artworks from Dalí’s incredible catalog are as unique and visually arresting today as they were the day they were painted, and we’re so delighted to be giving them a digital platform for new audiences who can enjoy them outside of a museum, at a home,” expresses Daria Greene, Global Curator at Samsung Art Store.
“One of his greatest desires was to be known and that his art arrived to a wider audience,” commentes Clàudia Galli, Art Historian at Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí. “Dalí would be really impressed to be in people’s homes.”
As a tribute to Salvador Dalí’s inclusion in the Art Store collection, Samsung has produced a documentary that delves into the life and impact of the painter. Scheduled to premiere on August 8, the documentary is part of Samsung’s Meet the Artist video series. This short film provides insights into Dalí’s inspirations, his life in Figueres and the Costa Brava region, and the profound influence of his work in the digital age.
