Mosaic Painting – Inspiration Parc Güell

March 28, 2011

Hello Monday! I am really excited to tell you about a new project I’ll be working on! I’ve been asked to do two custom paintings in an abstract contemporary style.  Inspiration will be taken from the photos below [photos I took while living in Barcelona in 2006].   

[A little background about the inspiration] Parc Güell was designed entirely by Antoni Gaudí. He intended it to be a garden city, and it’s buildings and sparkling ceramic mosaic stairways were designed to house the city’s elite. However, only one house, now known as the Casa Museu Gaudí, was built. The two staircases that flank the park lead to a towering Modernista pavilion originally designed as an open-air market. The longest park bench in the world, a combination of muticolored tile shards in the form of a sea serpent, decorates the top of the pavilion. A multicolored mosaic dragon fountain greets visitors at the main entrance.  

I’ll be getting started on this project this week!
