artists in action – Salvador Dali

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Let’s restart our series of Artists in Action.

Salvador Dali most of the time appears to be goofing around or showing his distinctive moustache. How about some pictures of him in action?


‘The Temptation of Saint Anthony’. Funny how nowhere in the picture a naked women is to be found.

Working at ‘Dream of Venus’.


In 1965, working on the Bullfight series.

OCTOBER 13. 2007: DAY 166, originally uploaded by akbar1947.

If you ever wanted to see how a sculpture like this is made, I suggest you visit this Flickr gallery. The photos will be regularly updated till the work is finished. Definitely something to follow. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you.

Stan Murmur – Poppies

Stan Murmur

Not like we haven’t seen poppies before, but there’s something different about the artist. Stan Murmur uses his butt to create his works. I’m sure you’re already looking different at this painting right now. Stan Murmur is was an art teacher in an American high school. He got fired because of his extracurricular activities involving showing how he paints on tv. And since this is America (no offence) he’s suing his formal school now. Stan Murmur’s website.
