Artists are creative people. The term is most often used to describe those who make works through painting, sculpture, video and performance, but it can be also used to describe someone with some sort of creative talent. A visual artist is someone who deals with different subjects but chooses to represent or interrogate these ideas through different mediums. Artists now work in a variety of forms, often seeking to make an audience think differently about a certain topic. Kara Walker is a famous American artist who creates visual imagery re-representing oppressive historical narratives of slavery. She uses hand drawn silhouettes, paintings, and sculpture to tell these stories.

René Magritte
Size comparison drawings of René Magritte comparing the heights of other related artists

René Magritte was a Surrealist artist born in Belgium in 1989. He is known for his paintings which challenge social conventions and perceptions of reality, forcing the viewer to confront their preconceived ideas about certain ideas and objects. He used repeated motifs in his work; some of his most recognisable symbols include a pipe, a bowler hat and a green apple. One of his most famous works is a painting of pipe with the words underneath Ceci n’est pas une pipe (this is not a pipe). He wanted to force the viewer to really examine what they saw: if it’s not a pipe, what is it?

René Magritte had a height of 5’8” (1.73 m).

Pablo Picasso
Height comparison diagram of Pablo Picasso compared to other artists

Pablo Picasso is considered one of the most important artists of all time and is considered one of the creators of the Cubist movement, alongside Georges Braque. Cubism is a style that seeks to represent the three-dimensional within two-dimensional art forms. Picasso utilized these Cubist theories to create intense and alluring drawings and paintings, that first appear abstract but then reveal hidden representations of people and places.  His own avant-garde style led him to becoming one of the most influential artists of the early twentieth century. Some of his most famous works include Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, The Weeping Woman, and Guernica.
