Picasso Painting with Light 01 Picasso Painting with Light inspirations design art

In these photographs of Picasso, shot in 1949 by LIFE magazine photographer Gjon Mili, Picasso traces a light pen in the air, effectively painting with light. You can feel his iconography subtly shining through in these glowing air drawings: bulls, centaurs, figures in flux, crooked cubist profiles, and of course African masks. Beautiful.

At the Denver convention center a big blue bear sculpted in geometric angles towers 40 feet high against the convention center’s glass walls. Seeming to peer through the glass, this bear is a downtown icon. Made from composite materials, its form was extrapolated from 3D digital images then built from over 4,000 interlocking concrete and polymer triangles.

In the Hôtel Au Vieux Panier in Marseille, France, there’s half a room that is tagged like crazy with all colors of the rainbow. The other half? Stark, zen-like, and white. Imagine the view from the bed: look right, modern and contemplative. Look left, riotous expression. The artist? Tilt.

I’m completely awestruck by New York sculptress Tara Donovan’s beautiful works of art. Looking at her organic sculptural forms, you can see why she was recently selected for the prestigious MacArthur Foundation ‘genius’ grant. Tara is known for creating unique forms out of ordinary objects like tape, paper plates, pencils, Styrofoam cups and much more. The mundane nature of her materials completely vanish into her otherworldly sculptures revealing instead curious shapes and fascinating textures.
