Biography and ArtLife: #Pablo #Picasso

“Pablo Ruiz y Picasso, also known as Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 – 8 April 1973), was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France. As one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore. Among his most famous works are the proto-Cubist Les Demoiselles d’Avignon (1907), and Guernica (1937), a portrayal of the Bombing of Guernica by the German and Italian airforces at the behest of the Spanish nationalist government during the Spanish Civil War.

Picasso, Henri Matisse and Marcel Duchamp are regarded as the three artists who most defined the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the 20th century, responsible for significant developments in painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics.

Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a realistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. His work is often categorised into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919).

Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments, and became one of the best-known figures in 20th-century art.”

#Documentary and #ArtLife: #Peruvian #Artist #LU.CU.MA

“Peruvian artist LU.CU.MA spent 27 years in jail for the murder of his brother, among other crimes. After his release, LU.CU.MA—short for Luis Cuevas Manchego—swore to turn himself around. He traded the machine guns, hand grenades, and knives that he once used to ambush buses for art supplies.

VICE traveled to Lima, Peru, to talk to LU.CU.MA about his life, how he uses art as a way to repent, and why all his paintings involve things like corrupt politicians being beheaded by snakes.”

#Movie: The Painter (2012)


“The most closed and shadowed place : “The Korean Art Scene”. What’s it like to live inside there?…For a long time, Korea’s Arts scene was the field that was most hidden under a veil and concealment.To exist as an Artist, not compromising to gain the popularity of the people and work for his artistic visions is simply asking for a rough, hard way of living.
This film is not a fantasy about the romantic lives of the painters of the 19th century.
This is a painter’s serene self narrative of conflicts living in the 21st century, which has totally lost its romance and purity of the Arts. His life includes no passionate romance, exaggeration for artistic chatharsis, no overnight drunken debates.
Only the dose of loneliness and cold reality that is shoved into his face daily, and the calm feelings of sorrow are drily melted into his works.
This is a story about not only the painters in fine Arts, but ALL the pure artists of all genres, who refuses to climb the ladder of compromise and adaptation and lives alone staying true to his Arts.”

Art: When #Jean-Michel #Basquiat went to Africa
