Design Transitions

July 5, 2020

This painting depicts the idea of how design has evolved over a period, changed lifestyles of the people and had an enormous impact on different design fields. Design is an integral aspect of every field such as Fashion, accessory, architecture, automobile, graphics, animation, etc.

Center of the painting represents the ‘Vitruvian man’ inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s most famous drawing. Da Vinci is also referred to as a ‘Renaissance man’.

Ultimately suggesting the importance of developing an understanding about human proportion, complete with precise measurements and elaborated the same into geometrical relationships. The painting also depicts various other fields and how it has evolved over these years.

In this painting, I tried depicting the whole transition & evolution in various fields starting from the past cultures to current modern times- such as including ‘Mickey Mouse’ a famous cartoon character created by Walt Disney from the year 1928 to today’s era famous characters of Avatar, Minions(Despicable Me), etc. which have used innovative visual effects techniques advancement to adequately portray them. Art forms are extremely primitive. One can also see how Fashion & makeup styles have changed tremendously over time.

Cross-cultural, social and historical influences have exerted a profound impact on fashion design & its styles. From 18th-century heavy-duty ground sweeping gowns with corsets tightly fitted, it evolved to short skirts and minimal look at the time of the first world war in Britain. Later, in the case of India, nationalist feelings swept the whole country. Rabindranath Tagore suggested having India’s national dress- a current formal way of wearing a sari came into existence and had gained popularity all over.

In the field of automobile, starting from the invention of the wheel to cycle, various carts, etc. where technological advancements kept happening gradually giving rise to various hi-tech luxury cars. Similarly, in all fields transitions have taken place at a great pace.

Every Designer, photographer, artist or painter is concerned ultimately with striking an appropriate balance of parts to the whole. They are all, in the end, working with proportions and balance in their works. Design is the planned way of creating any object, product, or a system.
