Pablo Picasso, Edvard Munch, Leonardo Da Vinci, Alexander McQueen, and Valentino. These are all men who have shaped the world of art, design and architecture with their creative and passionate devotion to their craft. Some may even consider them leaders, paving the way for others to follow, and in a sense they are.

Picasso Painting

Picasso is well known for bringing the idea of surrealism to the world of art. His idea is to show humans different states of terror and anguish after the Spanish Civil war, which was a time that revolutionized art forever, making him one of the most famous painters of all time. Leonardo Da Vinci is another astounding artist who is mostly known for crafting the Mona Lisa, a painting that has been said to be the most shared, written and visited painting in the world- a painting that showed the beauty of simplicity.

Finally leading us into the world of fashion and design is Alexander McQueen, an amazing designer who is known worldwide. It is safe to say that McQueen is a leader in the arts, and this is proved through being the youngest designer to receive the “British Designer of the Year” award.
