Eating Art in Costa Brava

While Salvador Dalí died in 1989, his legacy and influence is as much a part of Costa Brava as its rugged coast, fresh seafood and sparkling Cava. Dali’s surrealist vision continues in the studio of artist Quim Hereu.

Hereu is on a 10-year mission to create the three largest oil paintings in the world in the Strambotic style, an offshoot of surrealism that balances “seny i Rouxa” – or reasonable sanity and wild imagination, thought and flamboyance.

Upon entering his studio outside Girona, visitors are greeted with two sensory assaults – the striking visual of his massive 6×12 meter painting “The Strombotic Birth of Venus or the Time Factory” dwarfing an artfully set table in the center of the room; and the scent of dinner cooking in the corner.

Every bite of the meal is inspired by the art surrounding – foie gras shaped like the snails that represent eternal youth throughout the Birth of Venus painting; a multilayered dessert featuring local apples prepared half a dozen different ways; a checkerboard of red & silver tuna; pumpkin soup served in a decanter Costa Brava-style.

The Strombotic experience is the perfect bucket list addition for any foodie or art lover, or even just a regular gal like me. Check it out at http://www.hereu.net
