Cubism started in the early twentieth century and probably the most famous name in the art world today, Picasso, was one of the biggest cubists to date. His style of cubism is not the only one out there, although it’s what most people think of when they hear the term. Some cubism is bold and thickly lined with big colors. Other styles of cubism have thinner, more delicate line work, and limited color palettes. Art, in any form, is expression, and the vastness of it is what makes it so wonderful. Take that art and put it on human skin, and you’ve got something truly magical.
