the Influence of Art on Architecture....

... and a celebration of
PABLO PICASSO





GREAT QUOTES FROM

PABLO PICASSO


You know, music, art - these are not just little decorations to make life prettier. They're very deep necessities which people cannot live without.

.

Art is not the application of a canon of beauty but what the instinct and the brain can conceive beyond any canon.

.

When we love a woman we don't start measuring her limbs.

.

Every child is an artist; the problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

.

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.

.

The purpose of Art is to create enthusiasm.

.

The important thing is to create.

.

The chief enemy of creativity is 'good taste.'

.



Picasso changed the way we look at the world. He changed art from a subject of representation to a subject of time and composition.

He influenced artists of all persuasions by releasing them from having narrow parameters for what they could do.

One of the architects most associated with artists is
Frank Gehry


GREAT QUOTES FROM

FRANK GEHRY

I search out the work of artists, and use art as a means of inspiration.

.

I want to be open-ended.

.

There are no rules, no right or wrong.

.

I'm confused as to what's ugly and what's pretty.

.



Architect Frank Gehry always has credited artists with inspiring his iconoclastic buildings, famous for their exuberant use of mundane materials, odd angles, wild curves and beautiful light.
