“Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time, for everybody.”-Piet Mondrian

 

Back in 2010 I wrote a blog about Mondrian. At that time there seemed to be a resurgence of products that were inspired by his wonderfully expressive art. Today is the 140th birthday of Piet Mondrian and one that I think is worth celebrating.

 

Here is an excerpt of what I feel to be the reason behind our attraction to Mondrian.

 

We are drawn to the simplicity of the primary palette because it taps into our inner child. The basic shapes and colors together are pleasing without being overly complex.

Happy 140th Birthday, Piet Mondrian!.
