The Early Influences
From an early age, Mondrian had an interest in art, enrolling in the State Academy of Fine Arts, Amsterdam, where he studied traditional academic painting techniques. However, his life changed after he was exposed to abstract painters like Picasso during his travels to Paris, where he began to experiment with his own techniques.
He also became heavily involved in the Dutch art movement "De Stijl," which sought to create a new visual language through the use of simple geometric shapes and primary colors.
Developing His Style
Piet Mondrian’s work simplifies form, placing an emphasis on geometric shapes, and a use of primary colors. He creates abstract compositions of black lines and colored rectangles, arranged in a grid-like structure, creating a sense of order and balance.
He believed that this style, “Neoplasticism”, was a universal language that could express the harmony of the world and his paintings have a striking visual impact, with their bold primary colors and sharp lines commanding attention.
Mondrian’s work had a significant impact on modern art, directly influencing the development of art movements like abstract art, minimalism, and geometric abstraction.
Specifically, his use of geometric forms and primary colors inspired many abstract artists, and his ideas about the harmony of the world through balance and order continue to be influential in contemporary abstract art
