"Abstract"

First created by Picasso. Cuz after the invention of cameras and photos there was really no need for people to create real drawings... one button click would've given a better and more realistic result. Artists' wages went down. But Picasso decided that he wanted to do something different. Something unrealistic... something that a camera is not likely to capture in real life... so he came up with human features that had their body parts in different areas. Or simply unusual dimensions... after learning the story behind Picasso's work which I was not quite fond of previously, I came to understand it better and admire his way of thinking... despite the fact that I didn't exactly prefer abstract to realism. Yet, admired the idea :D ... this art class was most interesting to me... and learning how to think as an artist, we've been told to go with the flow when drawing and not aim for perfection. A real meaning behind art didn't have to be something real... even a small sign could hold a lot of meaning... very intriguing indeed... I don't know how many of you like his work... but these are a few examples... what I've done in class was something similar... course luckily I always get an acceptional mark and the teacher's always been satisfied...

I see where you going TT. Unrealistic stuff always makes me wonder what the artist was thinkinkg during the creation..

I'm more into realistic art though; it inspires me. I love the detailed stuffy. ;)

violet: yo girl...welcome... Deutchland my dear is alright... thanx for the compliments... give me the link to your blog... I wanna see it.

Hiya enigma, yeah! I might have a different reason why I don't exactly admire abstract :os... I wish I knew what it is... maybe I would like anything beautiful, but there always has to be a touch of realism in it for some reason... well said though... I'll keep it up inshalla, now that I'm back :) thnx
