3D Tour of Picasso’s Guernica


embiggen

Guernica is a painting by Pablo Picasso. It was created in response to the bombing of Guernica, Basque Country, by German and Italian warplanes at the behest of the Spanish Civil War, on 26 April 1937. Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians.
We’re highlighting today a digitally-rendered 3D tour of Picasso’s landmark work. It’s the creation of Lena Gieseke, a visual effects artist who, once upon a time, was married to the filmmaker Tim Burton.

Street Life in Paintings of Kal Gajoum

In art works of Kal Gajoum you can feel warmth and energy, which is often overlooked by contemporary artists. His paintings are both modern and traditional, powerful and delicate, complex and simple. Kal Gajoum is a real colorist whose works fill the room with light. And, it’s probably not just because the artist is well mastered the technique of painting. He really loves his job – and each work radiates this love. And vivid scenes of street life filled with red umbrellas have become a hallmark of the artist.



Famous Logos With No Name: You Took My Name

This art series is called “You Took My Name”. It’s made by Dorothy – a collective of like-minded people working on unlike-minded ideas. Over the years Dorothy made, designed and promoted things, winning Design Week, D&AD and New York Festivals.

Dorothy says:
“We’re working on a series of paintings that strip famous logos back to their basic graphic forms. Creating pieces that we think are artworks in their own right. Recognize any?”
