Just recently for my 50th birthday I received a piece of Kandinsky art. It was exceptional and I wanted to find out more about this artist and his work. So I started doing a search online for Kandinsky art. The search produced Wassily Kandinsky art and I was excited to find some information of this artist who created this piece I was just given. I discovered this artist was born in 1866 and started painting at the age of 30. He is credited with painting the first modern abstract works. I also found that Kandinsky paintings are in demand all over the world. This artist has had a great impact on the world of art.
Abstract art by Wassily Kandinsky is so unique and as said by Kandinsky himself, a vision of inner beauty. He says from a young child he was fascinated with color. Regardless of what he looks at he sees it in vibrant colors. This is portrayed in his work. Every piece of Kandinsky art seems to have a life of its own. It has a way of telling you a story just by looking at it. The more I find out about this artist the prouder I am to have his art hanging in my living room. I think it’s important to appreciate great work by great artists. Yet I feel it’s also important to have some understanding of the artist themselves.
It seems by searching more about Kandinsky art I have found people to say he was one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th century. They also say he was self taught and expressed his feelings through his work. A quote by Wassily Kandinsky says “(Black) is like the silence of the body after death, the close of life. This seems to greatly explain his desire for color. How he felt color explained his inner feelings. His career spanned 40 years as an artist. It is estimated he did over 50 works of art in his career. The last piece of Kandinsky art was his “Composition X”, it seems fitting that this was his last piece he did before he died and the background was all in black. People say this is quite strange as he had a strong dislike for black. Maybe he knew death was close. I am very glad to learn a little more of this artist and I am proud to have his work in my home.
