Salvador Dali and surrealism fascination

Lina Way

I have always been fascinated by surrealism and Salvador Dali in particular. When i look at his art it always makes me think about human subconsciousness and psychology.

One of my friends has a copy of Salvador Dali sketch “City of drawers” (1936), and i just fell in love with it!

“City of drawers” makes use of the psychoanalytical reference of Austrian psychologist Sigmund Freud; “City of drawers” like “The Burning Giraffe” has sets of drawers, which fits in with Dali’s quote: “the only difference between the immortal Greece and contemporary times is Sigmund Freud, who discovered that the human body, purely platonic at the Greece epoch, nowadays, is full of secret drawers that only psychoanalysis is capable of opening.”
