Who said meeples – the person-shaped single-colored tabletop figures – can’t have their own distinct flair and unique style?! In the new teeketi.com collection, board games meet pop culture and your favorite wooden tokens star in the most iconic gameplay. From arts to science or politics, and from reality to fiction, there are countless famous personalities and acting roles who have either been loved or hated immensely at some point of history by the general public. Now, it’s the time for The Meeples to rebel. They have to abandon their boring monochrome, and put on their brand new colorful costumes, do their hair and pick up the microphone (as Lady Gaga), the paintbrush (as El Greco) or … even the ax (as Jack Nicholson playing Jack Torrance in Kubrick’s Shining). Long story short, it’s time for the Meeples community to shine.

Just-A-Meeple Βut … Salvador Dali
EXCLUSIVE! A Dali Meeple has left out of its box. Caution! Do not walk with bare feet on the carpet!
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquess of Dalí of Púbol (11 May 1904 – 23 January 1989) was a Spanish surrealist artist renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship, and the striking and bizarre images in his work.
Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain, Dalí received his formal education in fine arts in Madrid. Influenced by Impressionism and the Renaissance masters from a young age he became increasingly attracted to Cubism and avant-garde movements. He moved closer to Surrealism in the late 1920s and joined the Surrealist group in 1929, soon becoming one of its leading exponents. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931, and is one of the most famous Surrealist paintings. Dalí lived in France throughout the Spanish Civil War (1936 to 1939) before leaving for the United States in 1940 where he achieved commercial success. He returned to Spain in 1948 where he announced his return to the Catholic faith and developed his “nuclear mysticism” style, based on his interest in classicism, mysticism, and recent scientific developments.
Dalí’s artistic repertoire included painting, graphic arts, film, sculpture, design and photography, at times in collaboration with other artists. He also wrote fiction, poetry, autobiography, essays and criticism. Major themes in his work include dreams, the subconscious, sexuality, religion, science and his closest personal relationships. To the dismay of those who held his work in high regard, and to the irritation of his critics, his eccentric and ostentatious public behavior often drew more attention than his artwork. His public support for the Francoist regime, his commercial activities and the quality and authenticity of some of his late works have also been controversial. His life and work were an important influence on other Surrealists, pop art and contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst.
