asks:
My cats name is Salvador! From Salvador Dali

That is the coolest shit! When I was in graduate school I actually concentrated in Surrealism. I have such a love and appreciation for Surrealism! Way to go picking such a boss name for your cat!

Beyond being a total babe, she worked with the Parisian Surrealists and earned their respect as a female artist, which was pretty unheard of

Political turmoil forced her to move to Mexico with fellow Surrealist, Leonora Carrington, where they where able to redefine Surrealism free from the misogynistic, limited views of their male counterparts

She also painted some of the most interesting works of the movement because she so frequently utilized animals in abstract, unexpected ways
