As an artist, being inspired is one of the most important things. Inspiration can help you create masterpieces, attempt new creations and learn new skills. During the lockdown, it can be challenging to get your fulfilment of inspiration, especially as all the legendary artists have their work hanging on gallery walls.
Staring at the same walls in your house can be tedious. Yet, thanks to the incredible art world, you can transform your laptop screen into a virtual gallery visit. These galleries understand the importance of inspiration, and they also know that during the lockdown, creatives will need more inspirations than ever to get the paint on the canvas.
Prestigious art galleries around the world are opening their doors with virtual tours. Here are our favourite galleries which you can visit online today.
Salvador Dali is one of the most inspirational artists of the 20th century. He has inspired many artists from all ages with his surrealism work. To this day, Surrealism is still one of the most commonly practised art styles, and Dali had a considerable contribution to this timeless success of an art movement.
His most recognised piece, The Persistence of Memory, which features melting clocks on a baron landscape, still influences modern culture with ‘melting’ yet functional clocks being sold online.
In this online visit, you’ll find some of Dali’s incredible works inside and outside the gallery, click the link to find out more.
