An Entrepreneur, Self-Promoter and Visionary
The artist wanted to extend his vision out in as many directions as possible. A case in point for this comes from both Salvador Dali prints and Salvador Dali perfumes. Dali ventured beyond the realm designated for most artists of his day, and even our current day, as he set out in a very entrepreneurial fashion to create his own Salvador Dali perfume.
Moreover, his use of limited edition Salvador Dali posters was a smart way to promote the opening of his Salvador Dali Museum, which was envisioned to be one of the most significant art events of its kind when it took place in 1974.
A fact that is missed by so many people and even art experts when they consider the Salvador Dali biography, is that Dali was more than a visionary artist. The simple fact is that this artist was an aggressive self-promoter and entrepreneur. Dali sought to make the most of the mystery and mystic that he purposefully surrounded himself in. For example, he often spoke in a combination of several different languages when interacting with others.
This was done to heighten his persona and, in turn, the value of his name. He also intentionally gave misinterpretations of the meaning of his artworks to create even more of a buzz around them!
