25 Picasso quotes that will make you think

Picasso quotes

Graffiti of Pablo Picasso

Today I thought it would be interesting to explore some Picasso quotes.

Pablo Ruiz Picasso was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Whilst being best known as a painter, he was also a sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and theatre designer.

Spanish by birth but he spent most of his adult life in France.

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, so Picasso’s work is often categorized into periods.

Picasso was a successful man who made his mark on life. And it’s always worth listening to what successful people have to say.

So, dear reader, take a few moments to read these Picasso quotes and reflect on what they all mean.
