I like Dali's surrealistic style...

It's sad how sometimes when sharing our favourite works of art, we have to question whether it's pretentious or typical to say an artist like Dali, for instance.

I recently saw an exhibit of all of his works while in Venice, and they are so incredible and absorbing to look at.

I'm rather fond of Dali, Munch, Whitely, Kahlo, to name a few...
