    In the past week or so I've been looking at some of Picasso's work intentionally for the first time. It's not that I didn't want to before, but rather that I was probably afraid of being overwhelmed. Needless to say, I was right. There's just something about his abstract work, almost as though it's a controlled insanity. The closest thing I can compare it to is something like grindcore, like As the Sun Sets. The first time you see it/hear it, it's jsut one big mass, that seems threatening. But then you stop, and you observe the tamed craftsmanship of chaos, almost to the point where it turns into something elegant, maybe.
    The work Ive seen blows my mind. There was one particular sketch of an abstract sort of face, but it had sort of a movie-type theme, with reels. It was interest to say the least.
    Another thing that gets me, is his talent in everything he did. If he wanted to put an idea down, he did. But at the same time, if he wanted to make a concrete, and defenite picture down, he could also do that too.
    amazing.

    I heard Picasso was pretty good as well. He has some stuff at museums in certain places. I think there's a book about him too. Word.

    You know, I just found out about Mark Ryden a couple of months ago, but i had actually seen his artwork in my room without even realizing it. For those of you who are Stephen King fans, he did the cover artwork for The Regulators/Desparation, which is a weird (but fucking dope) couple of books.
    And according to Spock on a program on the history channel, Gaugin was able to deter Van Gogh from stabbing him in the dark with "simply a stare." Food for thought.

    Well some people try to pick up girls
    And get called assholes
    This never happened to Pablo Picasso
    He could walk down your street
    And girls could not resist his stare and
    So Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole

    Well the girls would turn the color
    Of the avacado when he would drive
    Down their street in his El Dorado
    He could walk down you street
    And girls could not resist his stare
    Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
    Not like you
    Alright

    Well he was only 5'3"
    But girls could not resist his stare
    Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
    Not in New York

    Oh well be not schmuck, be not abnoxious,
    Be not bellbottom bummer or asshole
    Remember the story of Pablo Picasso
    He could walk down your street
    And girls could not resist his stare
    Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
    Alright this is it

    Some people try to pick up girls
    And they get called an asshole
    This never happened to Pablo Picasso
    He could walk down your street
    And girls could not resist his stare and so
    Pablo Picasso was never called...

    Have you seen his "design" stuff. He did lots of bad ass posters promoting shows and what not. Really cool stuff, in addition to all his fine art work. I've got a book on his posters only. Lovin' it.
