Alberto Giacometti

Alberto Giacometti is one of the most celebrated and remarkable artists of the 20th century.and now the retrospective exhibition in Guggenheim is presenting around 200 sculptures, paintings, and drawings  by this amazing artist.

 

Giacometti  is one of the artists
that influenced my creative thinking!

His work is so deep and thought provoking that you can just spend couple of hours in the his artistic realm and notice the day gone by. He make you look at the world differently and promote observance to details

 I thought that this retrospective exhibition is great opportunity to explore realm of the mind and proportions as well as how scale can influence your perception.
