Salvador Dali Of Our Times

Salvador Dali Of Our Times - The Persistence of Technology

What if Salvador Dali was born in 1983 instead of 1904?

A valid question that you may have posed yourself in relation to certain artists, when walking in a museum that exhibits art of the previous century or before.

Would Dali’s art have¬†been the same? Would he have used other objects in his work or used different communication channels? Perhaps he would not even have been that known at all considering the numerous artists around nowadays?

Artist Brian Kirhagis experimented with the above questions in his upcoming exhibition “BK x Dali”, where he shows Dali ‘in a contemporary jacket’, among others with iPhones, mobiles and social media icons.

“BK x Dali” is on show from 5- 30 September in the Sacred Gallery in New York.

'To be with Art is all we ask'- Gilbert and George. A quote that has stayed with me since I first saw it a couple of years ago. The word I would add though is 'travel' and that is, in fact, Art Weekenders, our new creation. The Art Weekenders project combines my passions for art, travel and photography, while we - at the same time - like to inspire and hopefully help you to prepare your art getaway. I am also photographer, writer and developer of the photoblog SHOuTography, a project that I started during a year of travelling through South-America to explore my life-long passion for photography.
