The London Art Fair returns for its 31st edition this week, in the heart of Islington N1; fair dates are 16th - 20th of January 2019.
Offering artworks from over 130 galleries with a strong international presence, the fair features talks, tours and curated spaces. Over recent years the London Art Fair has featured artists such as Picasso, Grayson Perry, Eduardo Paolozzi with rising starts such as Chris Ofili and Jenny Saville, and of course, Salvador Dalí .
Amongst the exhibiting galleries are Gormleys of Ireland and Hazelton Fine Art from Toronto, Canada. Both are exhibiting a number of sculptures from the Dalí Universe collection. Several limited edition sculptures will be displayed alongside a rare original two metre high Dalí sculpture, which has never seen before at this art fair, Persistence of Memory
This sculpture depicts a limp watch draped over the truncated branch of a tree. Time was an obsession for Dalí, this eclectic bronze is one of the most recognisable piece of twentieth century art. Typically Dalínian, it evokes dreams, and challenges reality, fundamental components of Surrealism.
The Dalí Universe is delighted to be part of the London Art Fair, one of the largest events in the UK cultural calendar, and to be present with such a prestigious selection of bronze sculptural artworks.
The Dalí Universe will this year be commemorating Dalí in a variety of ways, 2019 being the 30th year after his death.
