A THOUGHT-PROVOKING contemporary art exhibition inspired by Andalucia’s most famous artist has opened at the Picasso Museum in Malaga.

Through paintings, collages and photo-collages, US artist Richard Prince challenges conventional views of desire and aims to alienate spectators, forcing them to revise their perceptions.

“I have always drawn with Picasso as my inspiration, ever since I was a child,” said the artist.

The 116 works also include graphite drawings and watercolours by Prince, who has previously exhibited at the Guggenheim museum and worked with fashion designer Marc Jacobs.
