Spanish Surrealist artist Salvador Dali was the toast of the town in the 1930s. After his massively successful solo exhibition in New York, he was featured on the cover of Time. And who could possibly ignore him? He had a long spindly mustache and a head full of bizarre ideas. He worked with Luis Bunuel on Un Chien Andalou, a short film immortalized for its ravage depiction of the subconscious. He also collaborated with Walt Disney. But on his own, Dali was a force. His Surrealist paintings Spider of the Evening, The Hallucinogenic Toreador, and Swans Reflecting Elephants are evidence of his immense talent.

Now is a great time to revisit some of his lesser-known works. The exhibition "Hello Dali," organized by Hiraya Gallery, is on view at the mezzanine of the Makati Shangri-La through February 19. Among the Dali gems here are drypoint etchings from the book La Paradis Perdu, Quatrieme Chant, the French translation of John Milton’s poem “Paradise Lost.” This is also a rare chance to see his four-panel lithograph The Rejuvenation of Time and extremely valuable prints from the Dali portfolio Le Bestiaire de la Fontaine Dalinise.
