The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.


Masterpiece of the Spanish painter Pablo #Picasso realized in just two months following the bombing suffered by the Basque Country town of #Guernica (from which the picture takes its name) during the civil war in Spain

☞ Do you know…

‣ The painting was commissioned to the author by the Spanish Republican Government for own display at the 1937 Paris International Exposition. Despite this, the choice of the subject was entirely autonomous and at the total discretion of the artist

‣ This is clearly a #protest against the #cruelty of wars. The choice to use, on a canvas with such imposing dimensions, shades of similar colors to obtain a monochromatic rendering, it underlines the absence of life and the #drama of the scene.
The picture must be read from right to left: the arms and eyes turned to the sky represent the screams of desperation; the oil lamp instead the technical and social #involution that every war causes; the horse symbolizes the #madness of armed conflicts; the bull, sacrifice in the Corrida, represents Spain; while the broken sword – highlighted by us in #red – on which a flower rises, gives #hope for a better future
