Dali's Elephant

Steel and neon, 2017

I have always considered myself a Surrealist, spinning the world around me in strange ways to create art. My Elephant is a tribute to Salvador Dali himself, inspired by a trip to his museum in Spain, where I found myself overwhelmed when surrounded by his work. As a lover of the natural world and elephants, this seemed a natural choice for my Surreal Jungle series.
