Dali Universe (London) Reviews
Newest Review: ... £8 (7 - 14) Family Ticket £38 (2 adults 2 children) These prices might seem a little expensive especially compared to the free galleries in London, but as a Dali fan it was worth paying. Although we didn't pay the whole amount, as there were people outside the gallery handing out tickets for £4 off and they gave us two so we only paid £10 each. I still would have paid £14 though! The entrance to the gallery is a black corridor with pictures of Dali and some quotes which was quite interesting. There is then a timeline of his life which is very extensive and I only skim read it! There are a lot o... more

I have been a Salvador Dali fanatic ever since I can remember,one of my first memories was his painting "the Metamorphosis of Narcissus" hanging up in my dining room every time I ate.This is probably the reason I turned out as surreal as I did...

I went to London,to the south bank,saw some beautiful statues influenced by some of his work outside.I paid the ... Read the complete review

A visit to the 'Dalí Universe' opened up my eyes about Salvador Dalí - an amazing artist. I had seen some standard posters of his most famous works but now I know that Dalí has created so much more. The exhibition starts calmly with photographs from Dalí's life and some of his quotes. It makes you realise how egocentric he must have been yet what an odd genius he was. - "I do not paint a portrait to look like the subject, rather does the person grow to look like his portrait." - "The only difference between me and a madman is that I am not mad." After this short presentation of the artist himself you are ... Read the complete review

This new permanent exhibition of Spanish artist Salvador Dali's work in London's County Hall collects together some 500 of his works of art, many of which have never previously been exhibited in the country. The collection is intriguing, containing of several of Dali's sculptures made from a range of different materials – long-legged elephants bearing giant pyramids on their backs, melted clocks draped over coat hangers, and woman-shaped chests of drawers. These sculptures are definitely the highlight of the exhibition. A friend of mine, who has visited several exhibitions of Dali's works, tells me that this is definitely the best ...
