Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marqués de Dalí de Pubol (11 Mey 1904 – 23 Januar 1989), kent as Salvador Dalí (Catalan: [səɫβəˈðo ðəˈɫi]; Spaingie: [salβaˈðoɾ ðaˈli]), wis a prominent Spaingie surrealist penter born in Figueres, Catalonie, Spain.

Dalí was a skilled drauchtsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist wark. His penterly skills are eften attributit tae the influence o Renaissance maisters.[1][2] His best-kent wark, The Persistence o Memory, wis completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive airteestic repertoire includit film, sculptur, an photografie, in collaboration wi a range o airtists in a variety o media.

Dalí attributit his "luve o iverything that is gildit an excessive, ma passion for luxury an ma luve o oriental claes"[3] tae an "Arab lineage", claimin that his auncestors war descendit frae the Moors.

Dalí wis heichly eemaginative, an an aa enjoyed indulgin in unusual an grandiose behaviour. His eccentric manner an attention-grabbin public actions whiles drew mair attention nor his airtwark, tae the dismay o thae that held his wirk in heich esteem, an tae the irritation o his creetics.[4][5]
