Pablo Picasso 1942 “Bull’s Head” or “Bicycle Seat”

Art critic Eric Gibson had this to say about Picasso’s controversial – at the time –  sculpture: “a moment of wit and whimsy …both childlike and highly sophisticated in its simplicity, it stands as an assertion of the transforming power of the human imagination at a time when human values were under siege.”

When someone has the ability to see beyond the obvious and imagine existing things, or spaces, in an entirely different form, it is creativity at it’s greatest.  When that creativity can be as simple as repurposing a bicycle seat and handlebars, turning them into art, it is genius.
