|Portrait de Picasso, Google Wikipedia|
"Picasso showed a passion and a skill for drawing from an early age. According to his mother, his first words were "piz, piz", a shortening of lápiz, the Spanish word for "pencil". From the age of seven, Picasso received formal artistic training from his father in figure drawing and oil painting.Picasso demonstrated extraordinary artistic talent in his early years, painting in a naturalistic manner through his childhood and adolescence. During the first decade of the 20th century, his style changed as he experimented with different theories, techniques, and ideas. His work is often categorized into periods. While the names of many of his later periods are debated, the most commonly accepted periods in his work are the Blue Period (1901–1904), the Rose Period (1904–1906), the African-influenced Period (1907–1909), Analytic Cubism (1909–1912), and Synthetic Cubism (1912–1919), also referred to as the Crystal period.

His thoughts...his words ...his quotes are a guiding force to many artists painters around the globe.
1 ) Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.
2) Others have seen what it is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not
3) I do not seek. I find it
4) The world today doesn't make sense . So why sholud I paint pictures that do
5) Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up
6) GIVE ME A MUSEUM AND I'LL FILL IT!
7) It is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction
8) I paint objects as I think them , not as I see them.
9) ART WASHES AWAY FROM THE SOUL THE DUST OF EVERYDAY LIFE!
"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality. There is no danger then, anyway, because the idea of the object will have left an indelible mark"Pablo Picasso.
Pablo Picasso, YOU LIVE FOREVER with your thoughts, your quotes, your art! Happy Birthday Picasso!

The obsession with cubism, still comes up in my art, yet strong influence and hold of healing power in art, symbolism, the power of words continues. The shapes beautifully unfold,each one with a world of symbolism and meanings. Art and shapes have become so synonymous with my thoughts that when ever a subject for a painting is visualized a grid comes up. The grid has come from learning and following Reiki since past sixteen years , The golden grid attracts blessings from the universe and attracts wish fulfillment. as also making art emerged as a serious passion since then, year 2000.I have thousands of small cubism artworks, many of which I have burned, the ritual takes place almost every year by October , November to burn some old paper paintings, damaged, clutter clearing, Feng Shui energy to welcome new ideas and new artworks.. Some are repainted as I wonder why they feel incomplete even after many years, they speak and communicate and repeated obsessive thoughts finally lead me to repaint or retouch the old paintings till finally the canvas rests! For me everyday is eventful, everyday is an exhibition of some new artwork, as I move ahead, enjoying every bit of this spiritual journey of The Red Pilgrim! Making art, sharing art, thinking art, quoting art, enjoying art! Continuously striving to learn new symbols, new hidden meanings, expressions with my precious symbols, how a glint in my eye comes when I am attracted to a new symbol... healing in art! Life is Magical!
God Bless and All the Best from Rizwana!
