Pablo PICASSO

Finally! I wanted to make a note about him for so long, but I was just shamelessly not motivated enough.

Pablo Picasso is whom I believe to be a very unique artist. One of a million. Despite the similarities in his Cubist artworks to Braque, his dear friend, he later moved on, or should I say, made another steps back in his artistic progression. What I mean is that he is like the Benjamin Button of art. All his life he sought the primitiveness of what missed him. The child’s carefree, unconcerned art creation.

The artworks I attached are what Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso drawn/painted when he was still a child (you’ll see the ages ones you click on particular artworks). And yes, that’s his full name and again - yes, I literally copied that from Wikipedia, I’ll never complain about my name sounding like a curse word in Polish anymore.

You see now that in the beginning he was already at the end. What came next revolutionized the art of the 20th century and influenced many, maybe even far too many artists worldwide. That is a topic for another note, though.
