The artist we are studying this term is Dutch artist – Mondrian. He was born in 1872 and died in 1944. Today we read a story that was illustrated in his ‘cubist style’ and started two pieces of art. One was a painting and the other is a collage. We also had a go at creating a work in his style on an iPad App called My Mondrian (it is free if you want it for home) Mondrian ‘cubist style’ work is characterised by parallelograms (squares and rectangles) made from black lines and coloured in with red, blue, yellow, grey, black and white. We will also be talking about vertical and horizontal lines during this time.
