Painting sculpture and architecture like 'micro-architecture'

Art, Design & ArchitectureJesse WalkerComment

Collection of illustrations titled 'Archist' by Italian architect and illustrator Federico Babina has fun reinterpreting 27 of some of the world’s greatest artists including Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro in architecture. From URDesign

Art and architecture are disciplines that speak and lightly touch each other, the definition and function of the architecture are changing constantly with the development of contemporary art,” described Babina. “I took pleasure imagining architecture steeped of art, designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist’s language.”

...“Painting sculpture and architecture have always been complementary disciplines that influence each other and feed to grow and develop along common paths.” added Babina “A sculpture is like a micro-architecture, a facade can become like a painted canvas and a building can be shaped as in the hands of a skilled sculptor.”
