Admirers of Pablo Picasso – here’s a new take on some of the works of one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century.
Just a little backnote on Picasso: Pablo Picasso was born on 25th October 1881 and he died at the ripe old age of 92, on 8th April 1973. He was Spanish although he lived most of his life in France and he was a well-known painter (of course), sculptor, printmaker (printing artworks on paper), ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright.
He co-founded the Cubist Movement (an movement that moved European art and sculpture to 20th century Modern Art), the invention of constructed sculpture, the co-invention of collage, and expanded a wide variety of styles. The impact of Cubism in particular was far-reaching and one of his most famous works was Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, The Girl with the Mandolin, and many more.

Using cinema 4D-ray, photoshop, and illustrator, the Pakistan-based creative re-imagined six of Picasso’s figurative works as contemporary 3D graphics. Titled ‘Mimic’, the series of visual experiments offers an alternative interpretation of some of the world’s most famous artworks. ─ (Info mostly from Wikipedia and Iloboyou.)
