Design Inspiration: Cubism, Picasso

Cubism is an art movement that i find very inspiring as a designer, the movement took place in the 20th century (1908) and the results of this abstraction or fragmentation of the viewers perspective of the art piece created some amazing works of art. Check out this vid about it’s humble beginnings.

This is also a great vid of Picasso’s work including the cubism movement:

  1. I like the way Cubism deployed text as textures or as recurring themes like the way masthead of the French newspaper “LE JOURNAL” keeps cropping up in numerous ways.

    As Picasso himself said “The hidden harmony is better than the obvious.”

  2. i had the great pleasure of seeing that chap Picasso’s mate over in Lanzarote, whos name escapes me – but yeah definatley find it inspiring. Love the video clips btw!
