Mirò - my favorite painter
Joan Miró1893 –1983 painter from Barcelona, Spain. I had seen pictures of Miró's work in the past, but it wasn't until I saw 2 of his paintings live in Centre di Pompidou, Paris, that I actually fell in love with his work! To be precise, it was his three "Blue" paintings that made me fall to my feet. How could something so simple be so dramatic. I spent ages staring at these three paintings and felt myself falling into their depth. Kandinsky is one of my other favorites (but I'm also very picky about periods when it comes to both these painters, as they went through a few desisive fases that aren't exactly my style). That sounds spoilt doesn't it? lol. My other favorite painter (but I'm not sure here whether to say artist or painter, as his work is more arty than actual painting..). I will write about him next time!
