Salvador Dali is one the true masters of surrealist art. His images are highly imaginative, striking and bizarre. They are composed perfectly with every item and subject working off of one and another to create a surreal and complex piece of art. His work takes the ordinary and throws it into chaos showing a dreamlike and unreal view of the world. Dali's 'The Persistence of Memory' is a prime example of this as it has been suggested that it could be based on Einstein’s theory that time is relative and not fixed, by taking this theory Dali has created one of the most recognisable surrealist art works to date.
