These Techniques Helped Salvador Dali Get Creative

Dali, who was known for his imaginative and creative imagery, created a technique called the "paranoiac-critical method," which involved creating a self-induced paranoid state that enabled him to create irrational connections between objects and visualize his subconscious mind.
