What if Picasso Had a Computer?

Many feel Picasso was the most influential artist of the 20th century and I certainly agree with that opinion. From his use of color, materials and everything in between, he was able to take art to new levels. He was willing to experiment.

If we were able to put Picasso into our age of computers, it would be truly wonderful to see how he would creatively utilize this technology. He already did layering when he developed his collages. I can only imagine how at home he would be as he navigated around the Photoshop layering menu.

Artists today are lucky as the list of available materials continues to grow. Artists are also lucky to have Picasso’s creative risk-taking as an example to follow.
