Francis Picabia

Francis Picabia is considered to be one of the most elusive modern artists of the past century. His vast varieties of work included painting, poetry, publishing, performing, and he avoided any singular style throughout his work. He was one of the leaders of the Dada movement which was developed in reaction to World War I. To be in this movement, Picabia had to reject the logic, reason, and aestheticism of modern capitalistic society and express nonsense, irrationality, and antibourgeois protest in his works. He is very relevant for contemporary artists due to his constant inconsistencies, strategies, and eclecticism.
