designer loves art...Paula Rego...199

with art you can sometimes show the difficulties your country  passed while growing up.

this is Paula Rego

Portuguese by birth, her family was very strong in putting her in an English school  then went on to study in Slade School of Fine Art in London. where she met her husband , also an artist, Victor Willings. because Portugal was in a autocratic regime when she was growing up, you can see this depicted in many of her artwork. her artwork which has been though many  techniques, shows a dark fairytale, mostly portrayed by woman.  each of her pieces have a story of their own and are  filled with symbolism. although  from my point of view sometimes are  little grotesque the fascinating stories each piece shows amazes me.
