Behind the Scenes of Dali & Halsman's "In Voluptas Mors"

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 11, 2013
We are very entertained by this series of behind-the-scenes photos from the shooting of Philippe Halsman and Salvador Dali's famous "In Voluptas Mors" (Voluptuous Death) photo. Depicting Dali posing beside a skull made of seven nude female models, Dali and Halsman took three hours to arrange the models according to a sketch by Dali.

Update: Anatomical Surrealism of Valerio Carrubba

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 02, 2013
If Salvador Dali lived today and really wanted to get into the medical profession but wanted to keep his artistic chops, we get a gut feeling that his work could possibly go in the direction of Milan, Italy's Valerio Carrubba. We have always wanted to coin a term such as "Anatomical Surrealism," but now we sort of want to call Carrubba's work "Anatomical Surrealist Landscape" painting.

Famous Artists and Their Cats

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Well, we should have known. We, or I should say I because I am speaking only for myself, used to think maybe I shoudn't tell the masses that I own a cat, but seeing that Dali, Warhol, Matisse, O'Keefe, Picasso, Kahlo, Weiwei, Klimt, Klee, Gorey and others all loved their cats, I no longer feel ashamed. Its a cat union party up in here. Thank you Flavorwire for grabbing this collection.

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 17, 2012
Dmitriy Samohin's tattoo work is incredible! He creates ultra realistic portraits on skin and works out of Ukraine. He says of drawing portraits, "Portraits are fascinating. And for me it’s all about the eyes, the expression. It’s like in our daily life; the eyes reveal everything."

Destino: Disney and Dalí

Juxtapoz // Sunday, May 13, 2012
Back in 2003 (what is shockingly almost a decade ago) Disney finally released a longstanding project titled Destino. Destino is a collaboration between the famed animator Walt Disney and the iconic surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. The film project began in 1946 with Dalí and John Hench storyboarding the work.

Salvador Dali Explains Alka Seltzer

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 12, 2011
Does this look like the face of a man that knows about the relief of minor aches, pains, inflammation, fever, headache, heartburn, sour stomach, indigestion, and hangover? Actually, Salvador Dali making a really great Alka-Seltzer commercial years back shows he knew how to neutralize stomach acid.

No question Salvador Dali still draws a crowd

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 27, 2010
Sometimes Salvador Dali gets unfairly placed in the "college rock" section here in the USA because he is the common poster found in dorm rooms and collegiate apartments. He can be labeled, even before Warhol and Picasso, "your first fine artist." That said, when you leave that bubble, you start to see why: Dali was a significant artist with wide-spread popularity and interest, so much so that he draws major crowds in an art capital like Milan. More information after the jump . . .
