PABLO PICASSO WEEPING WOMAN x ERIC KIM TRACE

WEEPING WOMAN ERIC KIM PICASSO REMIX

I love PABLO PICASSO, because he was the ultimate big ass kid. He made on average 1-2 art works a day until he died. Prolific, self-confident, and constantly innovating.

It took him a few years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.

Some lessons he has taught me:

  1. Play with perspective. In this Weeping Woman painting, all the planes and dimensions are on one plane. You can see both her eyes on a flat surface. Picasso flattened his images, and created his own alternative reality.
  2. Create emotion: In his weeping woman piece, you can really feel the pain in the emotions of the crying woman. Lesson: art isn’t about realism, but evoking emotion in the viewer.
  3. Sketch over the work of artists who inspire you, to better get inside their head.

I’m gonna keep playing around with this, and see where it leads me.

So friend, keep playing, experimenting, and having fun.

Always,
ERIC
