Contest description:

This year it is 135 anniversary of Pablo Picasso birthday. During his long, full of productive creativity life the artist has created around twenty thousand works and was recognized by experts as the most “expensive” artist in the world. In co-authorship with Georges Braque and Juan Gris he founded a new painting style "cubism". All his life Pablo Picasso was searching, trying to convey feelings and mood through experiments with colour and form. It is difficult to find such an artist on whose works the genius of this indefatigable seeker of new artistic directions has had no impact.

We will be glad to see your works dedicated to the creative works of genius Pablo Picasso. This may be different variations on the theme of his famous paintings, works the creation of which are inspired by his creativity , paintings or drawings in one of the styles in which he worked.

The contest is held in two main nominations:|
- visual art;
- illustration.  

It is allowed to post a portfolio of works in other specializations. In this case in the preface to works explain why you think your works fit the theme of the contest.
