Pablo Picasso

An animation film from the series “Impressions” made using cut out animation. The film was inspired by three Pablo Picasso’s pictures, “Self-portrait”, “Guernica and “Weeping Woman”. The development of the artist’s imagination is shown through dynamically animated sketches leading to the final shape of “Guernica”. The film ends with the image of a tear which transforms into the painting “Weeping Woman”.
