I love Dali's works. I have a couple of them (not originals) hanging in our house... I'm also a big fan of Gaudi.
I'm less fond of his shaving technique. It seems like it would work well for one who spent most of their time thinking about how they looked and little of their time having real fun or being useful. My understanding is that he probably didn't have to concern himself with much after his extravagance.
All I know of the man personally is that he isn't taking very good care of his 'stache recently...
I am a big fan of dali too, so much so that I have a half sleeve on my left arm of his work.
