Patasso was named in playful recognition of Pablo Picasso. Picasso was a Spanish artist who achieved universal renown and vast fortune for his revolutionary accomplishments, and became regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. He is known for co-founding the Cubist movement and for the variety of styles he helped develop and explore, including the constructed sculpture and the co-invention of collage. However, just like every great artist that ever lived, his work was severely criticized in the beginning. Pablo Picasso learned to overcome adversity, follow his passion and be true to himself. He was unique.
"Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up."
"Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist."
- Pablo Picasso
