Posi Vibez presents the launch for “Salvador Disney” zine – Sept 13, 2019 (Toronto)
In 1944 animator Walt and surrealist painter Salvador Dali began work on their first – and only – collaboration, the animated short film Destino. Eight months in, production was halted. WWII hit Disney’s finances hard and the project was shelved. Long after both artists passed away, the short was finally completed in 1999. This collection of analogue collages is inspired by the union of Disney and Dali. At first glance, this is an unlikely partnership: one’s shrewd capitalist, the other’s a fine artist. In truth, each artist fits both descriptors. Disney was a pioneer in the art of animation, while Dali appeared as a product pitchman in television commercials. The images that were used for source material were selected to best represent each artist’s brand. Dali’s signature landscapes and religious imagery are juxtaposed with Disney’s instantly reconizable characters to draw attention to how Disney’s work is revered in popular culture. Drawing on iconography from two lifetimes of work, Salvador Disney explores the legacy of a pair of artists who broke new ground at the intersection of commerce and art and poses questions about the way we remember the iconic duo behind Destino.
