Dali Dairy LIMITED EDITION GALLERY WRAP CANVAS - BS00014
NOTES: What would Salvador Dali see if he toured the highways and by-ways of this great country? Ben Steele turned his whimsical mind to that thought and ended up with this â€œcrazy goodâ€ insight on just what that surreal vision may be.
â€œI have a series of works where the Mastersâ€™ paintings appear on the barns of rural farms. When the name Dali Dairy popped into my head and I said to myself, â€˜Oh - that sounds good.â€™ It was a rather quick leap to populating the farm with these flamingo-legged cows inspired by Daliâ€™s The Temptation of St. Anthony rather than painting a Dali image on the barn. I am particularly happy with the mischievous look of the cows, especially the second from the left.â€
The Dali Dairy original could have sold many times over when it was unveiled at a show in Palm Springs and was purchased by Floridaâ€™s Raymond/James Art Collection. It is interesting to note that Mr. James is currently the president of the Salvador Dali Museum Board of Trustees.
Dali Dairy is a conversation-stopping, truly American work of surreal art. Get your Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition Canvas before the cows head for the barn and this crazy-good edition sells out..

Ben Steele bio
Steele was born in 1977 in Kennewick, WA. He graduated from University of Utah in 2002 with a BFA in painting and drawing, continuing his education at the Helper Workshops under the instruction of David Dornan and Paul Davis. The summer workshops led to a multi-year internship with Dornan and Steele relocated to Helper where he has been living and working as an artist ever since.
Steele considers himself to often be on the outside of the art world looking in. Rather than fitting any specific movement, he's best described as an Art Chameleon, using his work to comment on the history of art as a whole. To do so, he incorporates many different processes of painting and isn't tied down by any one style.
With an education built upon classical training, however, he enjoys utilizing the techniques and processes of the old masters with a contemporary sensibility. What results is a paradoxical reverence for art with playful and sometimes acidic commentary.
