Piet Mondrian symbolic caricature

Piet Mondrian was born on this day back in 1872. For my picture of him, I decided to do a symbolic caricature. Using the older looking Mondrian was quite a challenge as all the shapes are curved... unlike his artwork. After trying several versions I decided this one works best.

You may have seen on my website selection of created caricatures of Artist redendered in their own style http://www.ianart.co.uk/IanArt-Artists.htm. Guess this is another one I could add to them.

For todays birthday personality I have drawn a symbolic caricature of the talented Bobby Womack. Reading his bio, it is incredible how many other singers he wrote for (some of these artists names I used to create his sideburns).

Today is Daniel Craig's birthday. This is a symbolic caricature I created some years ago. As the new 007 film "No Time to Die" is imminent, thought it would be fitting to use for today's birthday celebrity.

Been getting back into creating my Symbolic Caricatures lately. I love the challenge of trying to capture a personality with a limited amount of detail. 

Couldn't believe it was back in 2010 when I created my first symbolic caricatures - think it was the one of Andrew Lloyd Webber (which you can see on my www.IanArt.co.uk).
