Artists’ egos—Dalí to Kanye?
Salvador Dalí once stated, “Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí.”
With the announcement of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour, West is once again making headlines as one of the most controversial figures in pop culture. Resembling Dalí’s words, his latest track, Saint Pablo, states: “I know I’m the most influential, that TIME cover was just confirmation, this generation’s closest thing to Einstein.” Certainly, artistic genius is, in part, born out of personality, daring, and ego. It’s up to you—and time—to judge whether Dalí, or Einstein, or an artist named Pablo (Picasso) laid the way for the likes of West. —Alexandra Cole, intern, June 29, 2016
