Daliesque – now this is a word that seems to almost need no definition or description, since anyone who is at all familiar with surrealist art (or with pop culture since parts of it have been influenced in one way or another by the surrealist movement) would recognize the name Salvador Dali. At the same time, I feel that it still needs that definition, since surrealist art is so unique unto itself and Dali actually worked with the form of surrealism called Illusionistic Surrealism. This form of surrealism utilized the pseudo-realistic quality of dreams by creating dreamscapes that had aspects of reality, yet that reality had morphed or exaggerated parts and bizarre juxtapositions – much like a dream.
