When you think of brilliant works of modern art, chances are you've probably thought of the works of Salvador Dali.
And since today's the eccentric artist's birthday, what better way to honor his life than to learn about the man himself?
His perpetually waxed mustache, bizarre choice in clothing, his affinity for walking with a cane - all of it helped create a larger than life image of himself. He was quoted as saying:
"Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure, that of being Salvador Dalí."
Destino wasn't officially released or finished. The project was revived by Roy Disney in 1999 and the Fantasia-esque project inspired by the late painter finally saw the light of day.
Many restaurants wouldn't want to cash his check, because his signature was usually worth more than the food and drink he ordered in the first place.
In addition to painting, the man penned some brilliant pieces of writing. He penned his own biography, The Secret Life of Salvador Dali, as well.
It took photographer Philippe Halsman and Dali 28 tries before capturing this amazing image.
She was the inspiration behind many of his paintings.
There's no one quite like him.
