Research Part III - Further Brainstorm

After completing my mind maps, the next step was to further brainstorm artists’ interpretations of
5 themes from my initial research, this time using pictures.

I found that Pinterest was an irreplaceable tool, when searching for different pictures.

Here is selection of the themes I was most considering, when deciding on my final theme:

Artist: ZDZISLAW BEKSINSKI

Zdzisław Beksiński (24 February 1929 – 21 February 2005) was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor. Beksiński executed his paintings and drawings either in what he called a ‘Baroque’ or a ‘Gothic’ manner. The first style is dominated by representation, with the best-known examples coming from his fantastic realism period when he painted disturbing images of a surrealistic, nightmarish environment. The second style is more abstract, being dominated by form, and is typified by Beksiński’s later paintings.

makeup for a series of pictures, which were inspired by the work of Beksinski.
