Picasso’s Tools for bloggers!?
Nah, not his cans and brushes : Tools for the mind!
Here’s what I did : I picked a great book about Picasso, from Philippe Dagen.
It’s a great book because it’s not about “Picasso’s life”, and it’s not a “catalog of paintings”. He looked for structures, patterns, tools for the mind, and showed how in many aspects Pablo Picasso is a great artist.
I took a pictures of these patterns he detected, and I’ll casually apply them into the blogging activity. You’re free, after this, to apply this toolbox to poetry, teaching, marketing, photography, baking, theater or music composition. Life’s cool, right?
- Discover the modern
- Express by the primitive
- Build until crumbling
- Invent some new codes
- Hold all styles in one’s hand
- Let loom the monsters
- Stare at inhumanity
- Pit against the present
- Never finish
These are terribly pleasant injunctions, right? It shows we can build our own roads, windows, tools and door. It shows we can dare, be casual, open, multiple. It shows we can play, have fun, plug things, juxtapose concepts, dance, be fast, and intelligent, and plugged to the now.
