Pablo Picasso

Pablo Picasso was a famous artist who was born in Malaga Spain, 1881, and died in Mougins France, 1973. Pablo Picasso was a known painter and sculptor, and soon became one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, known as the creator of Cubism. He was more than just a sculptor and painter, also making his way through being a print maker, ceramicist, and a stage designer. Picasso's type of materials was just about anything he could find, oil paint, watercolor paint, drawing, engraving, and more. The style Picasso once did that I think is important, would be surrealism, because his paintings and drawings just really make you wonder about his artwork, and in most, it looks as if he never picked his pen up, making the artwork far more intriguing.
