Among the big ones

Here I am again, a little bit late for different reasons, but, the most important thing is that I am back…and shortly with new things on the blog. You will discover them little by little. You could hace access to it just typing arantzaarruti.com,and about the rest, you will have to find it out by yourselves. Today I want to show you a couple of entrepreneurs, the first one is well known and I met the second one this last Easter in Barcelona, in the Ramblas; I hope you like his work too. Would you like to know who they are?

The first entrepreneur doesn’t even need a presentation…nowadays you can still say that he still is pure passion for many people: creativity in its pure form, innovation, illusion, gratitude, untired worker, humble, a good communicator, grateful, optimist, with a great capacity of observation, who trust on the team and, among others, a genius with his own light. I’m talking about the great architect Antonio Gaudí. The people who didn’t meet him in his great moment or who haven’t had the time to do it already, here you have a short video that I think it will awake the desire to know him and his work:

Every time I rediscover his work it impacts me more… because Gaudí was, without any doubt, ahead in time, a visionary and, above all, a great fighter and a worker. He has the capacity to see the space in not only two but three dimensions, and to be able to capture it on wonderful artworks like the ones I present to you through this video:

Something that I have discovered on this occasion is perhaps one of the reasons that contributed to consider Gaudí the genius that he was: he had a delicate health due to his fevers and rheumatic diseases. That forced him to spend so much time without going to school or even to work, and lead him to spend time “fruitfully” in a natural environment. Those were key moments in the life of Gaudí as he spent a lot of time observing  nature, but also working together with his father, finishing his architecture studies and developing his concentration capacity. It contributed  to the results and artwork that Gaudí,also nowadays, gifts us. I believe that we can also consider him a social entrepreneur: the Sagrada Familia is an example of that.

Here you have a last video about one of his artworks, the Battló house, which is really worth the visit to go deeper in his wonderful mind.

I met him a few weeks ago at the Ramblas in Barcelona and I think I can say that it was a really exciting and nice meeting. Pedro is another example of entrepreneur, who with his hands is able to make artworks and show his great creativity in small canvases in a really simple way.
