Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is one of the most celebrated surrealist artists in history, known for his technical skill, precise draughtsmanship and the striking, dreamlike images in his work. He became renowned for breaking conventions, forging his own unique artistic language through works in painting, sculpture, product and set design. The owner and president of Dalí Universe, Beniamino Levi, was a long term patron of the artist, and is widely recognised as a leading expert on Dalí sculptures. Dalí Universe owns intellectual property rights to 25+ sculptures and 100+ images which range from paintings and sketches to furniture and collectibles.
“Having passionately collected and curated the works of Dalí for the past seventy years, I am excited to see Dalí’s work take on a new life in the digital sphere and to be part of this historic moment. For me, it was of utmost importance to select a partner I could trust to bring Dalí’s artistic legacy into the digital age in the right way. We selected Artscapy due to their long term vision and commitment to bring Fine Art closer to the new generation of collectors with artistic integrity. Their platform also fulfils all the compliance requirements and is ready to accommodate for future regulations, which leaves us confident to meet the institutional and collector demand that we are facing.” - Beniamino Levi, president of Dalí Universe
Throughout art history, it is not a rare case for an artist to simultaneously be a scientist, an engineer, a draughtsman, etc. Dali was everything at once: a painter, a graphic designer, a film director, a sculptor, a fashion designer, a photographer, a writer, a poet, an art critic, a marketer, and, last but not least, an expert on blurring lines to create an alternate lawless world where anything is possible.
I believe that the moment is near when by a procedure of active paranoiac thought, it will be possible to systematize confusion and contribute to the total discrediting of the world of reality.

Art's latest experiment is definitely it's pairing with technological advancement: contemporary artists envision alternative realities once more, while connecting with prevailing cultures and historical legacies. In particular, Blockchain and NFTs, are uncovering boundless opportunities and irrevocably changing the way we interact with our world: physical and digital. Keeping up with this major transformation of the art-world, Artscapy is building technology to supply artists and art operators with the know-how to navigate these times, and simultaneously to become a pioneer in making Fine Art accessible to every collector.
In that respect, Artscapy is proud to announce that we have been chosen as the exclusive blockchain partner of Dalí Universe – the world’s largest private collection of surrealist master Salvador Dali.
This partnership marks an exciting new chapter for us: we will be supporting the preservation of Dalí’s artistic legacy, and bringing some truly iconic artworks to life with a new format, adding value to existing Dalí collections as well as introducing them to the new generation of collectors. All this through creating the first-ever authentic, official, licensed digital art production of the artist on NFT. The first series - of many - consists of digital art productions of eight of Dalí’s iconic sculptures e.g Dance of Time III, Lady Godiva, and Nobility of Time. Of course, we couldn't skip the notorious Dali motif , The melted clock face, that symbolises the fluidity of time: it is present in two key works of the series.
Commencing with the forthcoming Dalí exhibition of 13th of April in Naples, Italy, Spellbound - Scenografia di un sogno (Scenography of a dream), it will be possible to buy an official Salvador Dalí NFT directly at the exhibition, online on theDalíuniverse.online, or here on Artscapy.Each of these NFT artworks will be released in an edition of 9,999 and will be sold at $30 (£23), in line with Dali Universe and Artscapy’s shared missions of making art collecting accessible.
