Study Trip to Mallorca - Miro + Picasso

By ameliespitz, Jan 4 2018 05:52PM

I have travelled to Mallorca (one of my favourite places on earth), I went to the town of Alcudia to visit a goldsmith's studio. I was curious to meet creatives living and working in Mallorca (it was a old ancient building where the workshop was). I was curious, because my MFA collection was inspired by an old painter who once lived in Mallorca.

I am looking myself at some point to stay there ( to study the countryside or working on a collection). In December I went there to start my first steps. Some of my favourite painters have lived in Mallorca (Miro, Picasso). They worked on the island during their career to get inspiration and enjoy the lifestyle. For example, Joan Miro was a famous artist and best known for his abstract art from the 20th century.

This creative, abstract painter used circles and dashes with bold colours for many years and this helped him to establish a signature style in a similar way to brands within the present day.
