Finding Art Where No One Could

Finding Art Where No One Could

People know Picasso for his cubist art but what they may not know is he is an incredible “normal” artist who can capture the emotion of a subject better than you could imagine without seeing it for yourself. The difference with Picasso is he understood the imbalance of nature so understood art shouldn’t be balanced either. No eye is exactly the same. No leg is exactly the same. Cubism highlighted this in an unorthodox way. Picasso was also a sculptor who saw art in things as simple as a broken bicycle.

Creating For Himself

Creating For Himself

In his 90+ years of life, he created over 5000 works. The incredible thing is he didn’t sell one a piece until after he died. His focus was to create a collection for himself. A memoir of sorts. He loved painting and drawing images of his wife and his child, his family, different matadors, artists, acrobats and all sorts of things that he could remember his travels. He created beautiful works during the Depression and the World Wars that oozed pain and uncertainty in his own way.

Painting Like A Child

Painting Like A Child

Even at 90, he painted with a childish flair. He painted matadors with a range of strange colours, kind of like a circus clown. He painted men with no backgrounds or context…just dots and strokes of different colours and shades. Picasso never lost his love of life and of his art and this shone through even at the end of his life. Going back to the previous point, it wasn’t about other people…he kept his childish nature to create art that made him happy, that told his story.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
