Gaudi was a very progressive artist, one of those who preceeded their time.  You look at his work at first glance and you cant but respect the person and be impressed but the art.  He was an engineer, designing creative ideas for buildings, parks and churches.  His style is very iconing using iron (fer-forge) and mosaic.  His works stand until today in Barcelona decorating their main stylish streets such as La Pedrerra on Avenue Diagonal.  He has created some the most famous touristic destinations in the city such as Park Guel.

Artist ( Source of Inspiration):  Francisco Goya

Designer: Noha Hesham

Note from Designer:

Goya was a Spanish Romantic painter and printmaker (30 March 1746 – 16 April 1828)

A court painter to the Spanish Crown and a chronicler of history. But After contracting cholera and a high fever in 1792, Goya was left deaf, and he became withdrawn and introspective. During the five years he spent recuperating, he read a great deal about the French Revolution and its philosophy. Which has affected his art a lot & he started making his aquatinted etchings that resulted were published in 1799 under the title Caprichos.

Simply my Idea was to work on his 2 lifetimes – the very romantic/ cheerful era & the very dark / full of sorrow era. Demonstrating the Romantic era with the white color & touches of roses, & the Dark era with Black color & shades of Gold

My idea about the materials was having a mix between fabrics & plastic bags- I mean between reality (resembled in fabrics) & imaginary/ unusable stuff (resembled in plastic bags).

 I did 4 designs – 2 white verses 2 black.
