Brazilian art director Milton Omena has come up with an interesting project that imagines what logos of famous painters from Renaissance, Impressionist, and Modern Art periods would look like. He studied the painting styles and personalities of legendary artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and created a unique symbol for each one of them.
Milton, who works as an AR/VR developer for architecture visualizations, came up with the idea for this project one day when he was figuring how to expand his design boundaries and challenge himself. He decided to create visual identities for iconic painters and showcase them as a brand, with their own line of products.
Van Gough, Leonardo Da Vinci, Monet, you recognise these names right? These are some of the most electrifyingly brilliant artists that have ever lived. Their drawings have inspired billions, so what would it look like if these same artists had a logo which represents them in the modern world? Wonder no more, a Brazillian artist, called Milton Omena, decided to create some visuals which portray the perfect logo for famous Painters.
Leonardo da Vinci
So, what would it look like if Leonardo needed some business cards in 2018? What would it look like? Perhaps he needed some promotional mousepads to show off his work? What images would he use? Well the graphic designer Milton Omena, decided to look at Leonardo's body of work in history. Sketches, manuscripts, art and creations. All of Leonardo's work is incredibly detailed, but hey we are talking about December 2018 where Minimalism in design is everywhere you go. So here we go, This is what his logo will look like:
Vincent Van Gogh
How about Vincent Van Gogh? Everyone would have seen his famous drawings which involve the unique use of wavy brushstroke patterns. If Van Gogh needed business cards, or promotional flash drives in this modern age, a logo such as the one illustrated below would seem to be most appropriate.
The sculptor and painter Picasso needs no introduction, but what would his business cards look like? His art is the most expensive in the world, even among his peers. Check out what an interpretation of his logo will look like below.
Possibly the first person to indeed popularise abstract painting. His work may be confusing, angry, dramatic and polarising. He would need a logo which summarises his body of work as well as his painting methods.
