What would houses designed by the world’s most famous artists look like?
(Relaxnews) – What would a house in the style of Picasso look like? A new series of illustrated buildings in the style of 27 famous artists attempts to playfully imagine what would happen if architecture met art.
Archist is the brainchild of Italian illustrator Federico Babina, known for his projects exploring the link between the two aesthetic industries.
“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,” explains Babina.
“It is easy to find the art hidden behind an architectural shape or see reflected a geometry of a building painted on a canvas. It is impossible to conceive of the history of art in exclusion from that of architecture.”
The series includes a cubist house designed in the style of Picasso, a modernist Mondrian residence featuring blocks of primary color, a pop-art interpretation echoing Andy Warhol and a museum in the style of Miro.
“I like finding the hidden architecture in parallel universes, in this sense, the illustration helps me to explore alternative languages,” says Babina.
The prints are available in poster form for $24.96 from Babina’s online store.
