Artist Spotlight: Celebrating Piet Mondrian

 Art is the path to being spiritual. - Piet Mondrian

Artist Piet Mondrian (Dutch, 1872–1944), may be best known as a pioneer of abstraction, but his paintings are rooted in figurative traditions. As his career progressed, he gravitated gradually and methodically towards pure abstraction, a language he felt best expressed universal aesthetics and values. Mondrian's painting, Lozenge Composition with Yellow, Black, Blue, Red, and Gray, 1921, demonstrates his attempts to embody the energetic essence of nature and the universe through basic geometric elements.

Nearly a century later, Piet Mondrian's work still inspires artists, architects and designers everywhere. Bring a bit of that innovative energy to your life through our Mondrian-inspired assortment!

As creative and quirky as the artist himself, our Kokeshi doll inspired by Mondrian parallels the personality of the acclaimed artist.
