Picasso in Heaven
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)
Picasso, Creator and Destroyer. When he was 15 he mastered all of the painting and drawing techniques completely. He said it took him ages to break it all down and reach the level of a child again. With the average of 3 artworks a day, he became the most productive Painter to have ever lived. At the age of 92 he worked until deep into his last night, then he fell asleep and woke up:
Flying in a GOAT (Greatest of All Time) Rocket through the Painters Heaven…
The Painter’s Heaven is a project where I imagine my favorite visual artists and their current situation in heaven, where they were given a rocket of their own art. I experimented with a combination of photoshop and oil paint, using visual quotes of the artists oevre. The series is published as giclee prints on Hahnemülle Photo Rag fine art paper.
