Mentor: Pablo Picasso In a significant time of the beginning modern century, a new creation of art flourished by one of the best artists ever known in history, Pablo Picasso. He produced art in a whole new way that immediately caused tension between the public. His paintings were called cubist art. Picasso, as my mentor, has developed cubist art that follows the same idea of Franksteining. Like any art that is created by multiples of objects is also used by Picasso himself. In his analytic cubist painting, Picasso uses human figures that are "analyzed" with natural forms and reduced into basic geometric parts on the twodimensional picture plane. He used natural forms to represent the natural world. His method of producing art has inspired my work of Frankensteining the Bertil chair. I came up with a design and manipulated these abstract shapes to have functionality and disfigure.
C U CHAIR B E
Although the human figure is still identifiable, Picasso tries to disfigure the forms of the human body. Like my final chair, it was my intention to come up with a design that is still identifiable of the existing Bertil chair and yet it is disfigured.
