Salvador Dali said that he ‘did not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait.’
Since the Spaniard is often held up as one of the great artistic geniuses of the 20th century, this probably isn’t the right place to argue with him.
However, he also said, ‘There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.’
Genius, fruit loop or both? The jury is out.
