Looking intense and featured elsewhere, the Salvador Dali in Legos is something to see. Such rectangular plastic brickness glaring in the California sun. In contrast to the flowing melting semi-corporeal forms in his paintings.

    Whoa – mash-up of Jerry Herman’s lyrics with famous 20th century painters. Dali’ll never go away again. Indeed – did he ever? Go away, that is.
