“There comes a moment in every person’s life when they realise they adore me.”
You are not wrong Dalí!
I don’t know if you remember but back in October 2020, I shared a Dalí sketch that I did. I always wanted to re-create it as a vector but having been side tracked by my Mexican project, Dalí took a back seat. Then I discovered a fantastic app called Artsy, A New York based online art/auction house. Naturally I searched, Dalí, only to discover a rare body of work that I never even new existed.
It is from his art work that I re-created Dalí elements, replaced the original sketch patterns I did and put together a different kind of portrait.

“Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.”
I imitated. I produced something.
