  • Mashup: Lyrois X Picasso's Guernica

    Let me suggest you tweet this:

    I'm a big fan of pop culture and graffiti, I like papercutting and transparent vs. opaque, then again, I like light and shadows, particularly shadows. What better representation of light and shadows than dancing and dying?

    I keep seeing Pablo Picasso's Guernica in the original shape-set for the mural. With the connection already and always there, here is the resulting mashup; web only, no prints --

    Mashup: Lyrois X Picasso's Guernica

    Check out the details that mix nicely with shapes #1, #2, and #5.

    One more thing, it is said that Le Corbusier once called tapestries -- like the Guernica copy at the United Nations in New York -- "nomadic murals". (Note to self: Make nomadic murals, for the name and for the concept.)

    UPDATE: I added the very hi-res version of the mashup for your download and print-it-yourself pleasure. You may even send it to me or fly me in to sign it and make it very, very special. (Hazel Dooney's idea?) Also, I've heard that there's a big empty wall at the UN Security Council...
