Dali Repro



This is probably my biggest piece to date: It has since been painted over much to my dismay, it is a replica of a Salvador Dali's "somin-somin Birth of new Man". Dali's work was usually quite small interestingly enough, this particular one I know under 750cm in length, my'ne is over 2 metres and at least 1 and 1/2 in height. Which I think made the challenge easier, however I didn't use any sort of projector, it was done free hand from start to finish.. which also admittedly takes a little longer though! Here it is on my blog.. the painting was done with acrylic straight onto a wall that I first had to treat extensively. It was done on the wall of the once Eendekuil Hotel (Eendekuil, West Coast, 2hrs out of Cape Town)..
