Joan Miró i Ferrà was a Spanish painter, sculptor and ceramicist born in Barcelona.

Now Joan Miró in Tate Modern.

Miró is among the most iconic of modern artists, using a language of symbols that reflects his personal vision, sense of freedom, and energy. The exhibition includes many of the key works that we know and love. It also shows that, behind the engaging innocence of his imagery, lies a profound concern for humanity and a sense of personal and national identity. Extraordinary works from different moments of his career celebrate his roots in his native Catalonia.

I’m not really big fun of surrealism but I think his works speak to the child hidden inside me.

All the paintings are colourful and takes your mind to the magical world of fairy tale 🙂

I can not wait to see them live 🙂

 

 

and the one I’ve seen in London – Portobello Road 🙂

Enjoy our display of customised beach huts opposite the Royal Festival Hall, stretching alongside the river. Each one contains something different: look out for a library of the sea, an exhibition of vintage beachwear, a shell grotto, a slot machine by Tim Hunkin, and a rolling gallery of visual art remembering 1953 when a storm surge flooded much of the North Sea coast.

Participating artists include: Gordon Allum, Markus Birdman, Phill Jupitus, Tim Hunkin, Sadie Hennessy, Grenville Davey, Heidi Wigmore, Bill Mitchell with Dave Mynne, Holly Murray, Lemn Sissay, Southbank Mosaics, Patrick Loan and Andy Smith.

In Tate Modern there is one room dedicated to one artist Do Ho Suh who made an instalation “Staircase”.

I was impressed by the lightness and delicacy of that installation.

When I went back home I make my little research to find out more about the artist.

There’s a lot of depth and symbolism in artist Do-Ho Suh’s installations. Whether addressing the dynamic of personal space versus public space, or exploring the fine line between strength in numbers and homogeneity, Suh’s sculptures continually question the identity of the individual in today’s global society. I could spend hours trying to figure out what he is trying to say through his pieces.

Victor Pasmore was perhaps the most influential abstract artist in Britain and become one of the leading abstract painters of our time.

During his long and fertile career Pasmore pursued many different lines of enquiry in his work. He moved from realism to abstraction, from traditional art practices to painted collage and construction. It was through these transformations that he began to change ‘the process of painting’, and the works in this display chart his progress, from the 1920s to the 1990s
