New Paintings Which Combine Cubist and Realist Elements by ‘Belin’

Spanish artist Miguel Ángel Belinchón or "Belin" (previously) has long practiced photorealistic murals. It was in 2016 however, that his work began to mutate with the adoption of a cubist style, elongating his subjects' necks and segmenting their faces in ways that would make Picasso himself proud. Despite the distorted facial features, many of his new works feature recognizable subjects. Belin's paintings honor some of his great inspirations, displaying the likenesses of painters such as Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, and Dali, alongside famous subjects such as the Mona Lisa.

The problem with millennials isn’t millennials—it’s how you’re leading them

Lazy. Entitled. Narcissistic.  

At both the popular and academic level, those three words pretty well sum up the problem with millennials. But why stop there? They're job-hopping, promotion-expecting, still-living-at-home-with-their-parents, social-media junkies whose only shared passion seems to be the vague desire for fame. Oh, and they're also insecure (so if you could not call attention to those deficiencies, that'd be great). Of course, it's one thing to identify the problem … it's another to go after the solution.
