Artist: Diederik van Apple
Title: Salvador Dali express
Technique: Aluminum / high gloss resin
The artwork “Salvador Dali Express” created by artist Diederik van Apple is a unique piece that uses modern art techniques to create an impressive visual impact. With dimensions of 150x95cm, it is made of aluminum and high gloss resin.
The piece portrays the famous surrealist artist Salvador Dali as the background of a credit card, in a reference to the culture of consumerism and capitalism. The choice of Dali as an iconic figure in the art world suggests that art is often exploited as a way to capitalize and profit instead of being appreciated for its true beauty and meaning.
The combination of aluminum and high gloss resin creates a mirrored effect that amplifies the depth of the artwork, giving the sensation that Dali’s image is floating in an infinite space. The edition of “Salvador Dali Express” is limited to only 10 pieces, adding exclusivity and value to the artwork. The sculpture is a reflection on the relationship between art and capitalism, as well as a tribute to the work of the great surrealist artist.
