Berkeley #3, 1953.

Richard Diebenkorn is one of my absolute favorite artists. His large scale canvases are flooded with bold colors that combine to form a uniquely beautiful whole. Seeming to glisten with light, his paintings often hover between the realms of complete abstraction and mildly figurative compositions. Yet all of Diebenkorn’s colorful canvases are tied together by the same energetically-charged quality of raw emotion that continuously plays out alongside an ever-present in-depth exploration of color and light.

Picasso Painting with Light

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.
