Pablo Picasso was born October 25, 1881 in Malaga, Spain. He died on April 8, 1973 in Mougins, France. He was probably the most important figure of 20 century in turns of art. He once said, "Art is a lie that makes up the truth." Picasso's father was a painter and was impressed by his son's drawings at an early age. Picasso had a ''Blue Period'' during his art. In 1902 Picasso's friend died and he mourned for a long time. In the painting "Blue Nude" Picasso's emotions were messed up. He was sad so drew "Blue Nude" to express his emotions on a piece of paper. Picasso's mother once told him, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll end up as the pope," he later recalled. "Instead I become a painter and wound up as Picasso." Picasso's real name was Pablo Ruiz and finished his first painting at age 9.
Picasso's BLUE NUDE Painting
My artwork looks like an abstract painting with different objects in with it. The subject matter is abstract fantasy, because a humans face can't be split. The title of my artwork is "Abstract Fantasy". The black lines are the most obvious in my artwork. My artwork use oil pastels. To create my piece I used blending with the colors. My artwork was inspired by Pablo Picasso. My artwork does express a social issue. People need to realize that not everyone is the same. I tried to show emotion with my art piece by telling people you can be different. My goals in art is to be better at drawing. I didn't reach my goal because my artwork abstract doesn't have very good detail in the designs. I learned that Picasso is very detailed in his art. I learned that Pablo Picasso is an emotional artist and that he uses a lot of detail. The piece I did isn't exactly what I expected. It has some detail that isn't enough that Picasso would do. This will influence my artwork because it tells me to put detail in my art.
