Neoplasticism influences are everywhere

“Curves are so emotional”

Piet Mondrian

We all have something in our lives that references Piet Mondrian. A print, homeware, clothing or a building (check out OLSH School). Piet Mondrian is the best known contributor to the De Stijl art movement. He used a non representational form which he termed Neoplasticism. This vocabulary was limited to three colours -red, blue and yellow, three tones -black, white and grey, and two directions -vertical and horizontal. Born in the Nederlands, he set up an iconic Paris studio, remaining there until 1940 when he fled the war to New York. His deceptively simple, abstract style then blossomed under the influence of the subway system, modernist skyscrapers and the lure of jazz music. Above is the MOMA’s painting Broadway Boogie-Woogie, his love letter to New York. #mostadaptedartever #letsmakelemonade
