Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso is one of the most transformative and influential artists of the 20th century. Picasso’s paintings redefines the boundaries of artistic expression within art by using abstraction, distortion, symbolism, and emotional intensity. Seen as the inventor of the Cubist art movement, Picasso disassembles reality to create new perspectives and dimensions, expanding the possibilities of art.


Pablo Picasso’s artworks explore the human condition and the depth of the psyche. He creates artworks that challenge perception, engage the intellect, and evoke a spectrum of emotions - often confronting themes of war, peace, love, and loss in masterpieces such as Picasso’s Guernica or Portrait of Gertrude Stein. In each period of Picasso's life as an artist, he sets out to break the conventional forms of the past, continuously evolving in his quest for artistic truth and self-discovery. During Picasso’s Blue Period, his work was characterised by sombre tones and melancholic themes, reflecting on the recent death of his friend Carlos Casagemas, along with the societal woes of the early 20th century. While his later Surrealist Period is characterised by bizarre, unexpected shapes inspired by dreams, unconscious emotions, illusions and fantasies. 


For Picasso, the canvas is a playground of the mind, where ideas are constructed and deconstructed; what emerges is a monument to the power of creativity.
