BITS – Vasily Kandinsky’s Geometric Abstract Art

In ALL, BITS by Julia Krolik

Russian painter Vasily Kandinsky¬†is credited for creating the first abstract artworks. Kandinsky’s aesthetic is characterized by several artistic periods spanning his career, including his teaching position at the Bauhaus in Germany from 1922-1933.

During his time at the Bauhaus: “Kandinsky’s works again underwent changes: individual geometrical elements increasingly entered the foreground, his palette was sated with cold colour harmonies which, at times, are perceived as a dissonance, the circle is used differently, as a sensual symbol of perfect form.” – Oleg Ku
