Picasso Paintings as 3D Art #1: Monument to the Spaniards

 

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.

About Mimic by Omar Aqil

And then, along came Omar Aqil, this century, (in fact, just a couple of months ago), − himself a well-known CGI artist, who decided to initiate a project to turn Picasso’s paintings into 3D art masterpieces.

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.)
