The Art of Inspiration

“Had I been born Chinese, I would have been a calligrapher not a painter” – Picasso
“I want to try to paint my self portrait in writing” – Van Gogh
“If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do” – Steve Jobs




For the anniversary of the founding of the Lasalle College of the Arts, these iconic figures are brought to life by crafting their respective quotes in a calligraphy style to construct and develop their faces.

Lasalle College of Arts wanted to attract students of all artistic interests; from painting to typography and much more. The tricky part was how to stand out in a small city/country where competition is strong with many other art colleges around. 

Being an art college, it made sense for us to be inspired ourselves. From research, we discovered three iconic people that had made inspirational, art-related quotes. They are insightful and probably something that not many people know or would’ve heard of.
