Infographic Biographies of 10 Artists

I don’t know about you, but I’m lovin this whole Infographic thing.

This series visualizes the lives of ten modern artists, illustrating both the events of the artists’ lives and details about their artwork. Giorgia Lupi and her team at Accurat (they make infographics) collaborated with illustrator Michela Buttignol to bring us these ten timeline prints, as well as a work that compares all ten artists in one.

Here’s what Giorgia Lupi has to say about the project on her site:

This project is an attempt to build a visual anthology of 10 abstract painters’ lives,isolating pictorial elements from painters’ styles and using them to tell the story of their life and artistic production through a series of diagrams.

We love abstract painters, we love series and collections, and the possibility to build visual formats to describe comparable stories.
This visualizations shouldn’t be considered scientific.
The data comes from wikipedia, wikipaintings and biography.org.
We depicted a timeline for each painter, illustrating his artistic production within his main periods, his awards, trainings, connections and influences and further information about his life such as health related issues, habits, love affairs, geography of his moves and important events.
We found it compelling to literally “steal” from each painter’s style. Using colors and shapes each one of them uses to compose their timelines of life events and artworks.

So, not scientific. Don’t use this as a source in your final paper. But, I can’t say I won’t look to these prints to jog my memory on these artists’ lives and contributions. Useful and lovely -just the way I like it!
