Pablo Picasso Biography

Birthday: October 25, 1881
Birthplace: Malaga, Spain

Pablo Picasso's Colorful Childhood

Picasso was the son of a Spanish art teacher. He painted and drew from an early age (he even painted his sister with egg yolks) and when he was 14 he applied to a prestigious art school called La Coruna, which is in Barcelona, and was accepted. The school soon recognized his talents and they skipped him ahead two classes. His father is said to have been so impressed by Picasso's talents that he gave Pablo his brushes and vowed never to paint again.

Pablo Picasso Hits it Big

Pablo Picasso's journey to becoming one of the most famous artists of all time began at a small art exhibition in 1901. It didn't get very good reviews and he was even accused of being pretty unoriginal. Picasso moved to Paris in 1904, where he continued painting and began sculpting and even designing costumes for the ballet. Picasso's work slowly gained recognition - eventually he became the most famous living artist ever.

Pablo Picasso's Legacy

Picasso was the single greatest influence on art of the 20th century. His drawings were known for their clarity, subtlety and simplicity. Picasso was not only known for the quality of his work, he was also known for the quantity - he produced hundreds of works in his lifetime.

Kawaii Chan P.O.V Kawaii waited at the bus stop after leaving the house, only just hearing what Katelyn said, she was tempted to go back and finish the cupcake... No, she had to see Zane. The bus came and she went in "where you goin' today sugar?" Kawaii Chan smiled at the man "kawaii Chan is going to the hospital" she said, giving the man a few dollars "please take a seat" kawaii Chan nodded as the bus driver tipped his hat at her, and they started up the road Zane P.O.V Zane felt the wheel chair go over a bump and into the air-conditioned hospital, he shivered, hearing doctors speak, kids crying and adults grunting, groaning and moaning made him nervous, thinking he had to look proper, he sat up straight, instantly regretting it, his back cracked and the nurse laughed "you know, you don't have to be fancy to be at a hospital, right?" Zane sighed "well it sure felt that way" the nurse laughed again, not responding though, then he heard running footsteps behind him, slightly screaming, then a voice "Zane kun!" He realised who it was, "k-kawaii Chan?" Kawaii Chan laughed "of course it's kawaii Chan, silly!" He bit his lip "okay.." he felt himself going over another bump, probably his hospital room, "uh, Zane, you'll need to get up to get on the bed, though you can't see, you think you'll be alright?" Zane shook his head "no" someone took his hand "kawaii Chan can help!" He realised kawaii Chan holding his hand, but he knew he was okay, it was kawaii Chan, he would be safe with her, he realised he was muttering "miss, you're blushing, are you alright?" The nurse said, and kawaii Chan giggled "I'm okay"
