This effort can be summed up in the artists own words, "at the age of six I wished to be a female cook, at seven Napoleon, ever since, my ambition has been continually on the increase, as has my megalomania {a symptom of mental illnessmarked by delusions of greatness, wealth}: now all I want to be is Salvador Dali. But the closer I get to my goal, the further Salvador Dali drifts away from me." </p> <p>Objective:To create a 1 point perspective SURREAL room.The interior of the room will show VALUES (using pencil).
