Flower

A street artist rendition of Picasso’s “Guernica” in Cheonan, S. Korea

In the hip little neighborhood of Shinbu-dong, among the backstreets lined with hand ground coffee shops and small clothing boutiques, you can find murals like these done by painters from all over the world. I was out early one morning working on a different piece when I stumbled upon this rendition of Picasso’s Guernica. Picaso painted the piece in the 30’s about the Spanish Civil War, but this reproduction is far from accurate, namely the giant pink and blue flower in the center. I wonder what the intention was behind this change, or if the painters were aware of the meaning of the original.

For editing, I applied a focal black and white filter centered on the flower, and a pixilated filter to extend the surrealism of the piece.

Camera: Nikon D3100, 18-55mm lens

Effects: Focal B&W and Pixelate
