Salvador Dali, the leader of surrealism, was my inspiration for this project. Surrealism is a 20th-century movement in art and literature that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious mind. I really enjoyed this project because it was very liberal. I could express whatever I wanted to.

I love surrealism because it is so interesting. It’s a doorway into the artists mind. Ideally, everything in my picture means something. I won’t go into details but in general this picture represents: family, safety, growth, universality, and the idea of fantasy worlds.

I love the themes that you expressed and surrealism is one of my favorite movements. This is a really great look into your  mind.
