HOW TO MAKE MONDRIAN CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENTS

PIET MONDRIAN

Piet Mondrian is a Dutch artist best known for his abstract paintings. Abstract art is art that does not show things that are recognizable such as people, objects or landscapes. Instead artists use colors, shapes and textures to achieve their effect.  Mondrian is celebrated as a founder of De Stijl, a Dutch art movement of artists and architects.

Although he is best known for his abstract paintings made from squares and rectangles, Piet Mondrian started out painting realistic scenes. He especially like painting trees. The influence of Mondrian’s art can be seen in many other things – from furniture to fashion.
