Surrealistic artist Joan Miró was one of the greatest artist of all time, whose works still influence in todays art world. He was born in Barcelona in 20.4.1893, where he studied arts and later moved to Paris in 1920. His unique style has been described as a sandbox for the subconscious mind and a re-creation of the childlike.

The museum also features contemporary artist around the world in form of changing exhibitions and the building was designed by architect Josep Lluís Sert. Unfortunately it is forbidden to take photos inside the museum, so the actual works cannot be photographed. There’s still this nice roof terrace, along some sculptures, where it’s allowed to take photos.

    A Salute to the Masters: Stairs (A Tribute to Alexander Rodchenko)

    This article is a tribute to the great Russian photographer, sculptor, graphic designer, and painter Alexander Rodchenko. He was a pioneer in the search for unusual perspectives, with extreme view from above or from below, and with an innovative use of the diagonals and tilted views in his dynamic compositions. For this article, I was inspired by his most famous photo, a woman climbing a staircase, taken in 1930, which is reminiscent of the famous Odessa stair of the film "Battleship Potemkin" by Sergei Eisenstein.
