African Masks and Artistic Ispiration

So here is what I picked up at that shop the other day!

I've wanted one ever since the Picasso exhibition last year. All of the uses of "primitive" art by Picasso and his friends, and the many photos if them in their studios, is inspiring to me.


I'm also a fan if Modigliani. Here is a poster I picked up when I saw an exhibition years ago.


And here it is in my kitchen.


Can you tell Frida also inspired me a little bit? Maybe I need a skull or two...?

You definitely need a sugar skull. I'll pick one up next time I see one.

That mask is striking!

Sugar skull? I need to investigate. I did see a crystal skull recently on Queen St. ;)

I imagine you'll pick up something nice when you're in Africa. Which country are you going to? RAS?
