Pablo Picasso was born on October 25 1881, Malaga, Spain. Pablo Picasso had many styles of painting, which were mainly abstract ( unusual). Sadly Pablo Picasso died on April 8 1973.It's like Picasso was born an artist: his first word was "piz," short of lápiz the Spanish word for 'pencil.' His father Ruiz, an artist and art professor, gave him a formal education in art starting from the age of 7. By 13, Ruiz gave up painting as he felt that Pablo had surpassed him. He is important to me because I love art.
