This blog sets out on a journey through time, exploring the evolution of monochrome art and discovering how it finds its way into monochrome rugs.
In the realm of art, simplicity holds the power to captivate hearts and leave an everlasting impression. In the vast canvas of art history, the emergence of monochrome art draws inspiration from diverse origins. From the advent of black and white cinema to the masterpieces crafted by artists of the 1800s, the fascination with using one color and its hue has intrigued creative minds for centuries. This blog sets out on a journey through time, exploring the evolution of monochrome art and discovering how it finds its way into monochrome rugs.
A Stroll Through Monochrome's Evolution
The seeds of monochrome art find their roots in the experiments of impressionist pioneers like Claude Monet and Edouard Manet. Seeking to break free from the conventional bounds of figurative art. Their strokes of brilliance laid the foundation for an artistic revolution that would later blossom into monochrome art.
The Monochrome Magic Unfolds
At the beginning of the 20th century, the notion of monochrome as an independent art genre started to take shape. Kazimir Malevich, the visionary Russian artist, embraced abstraction and geometric purity in his theory of Suprematism. His iconic work, the Black Square, became a seminal moment in the history of monochrome, paving the way for the abstract expression of art.
In the world of monochromes, one name shines with brilliance. And that is Yves Klein. His spiritual approach led him to explore the sky, space, and the infinite through the purity of a single color and its various hues. Klein's iconic work, such as 'Leap into the Void,' pushed the boundaries of art and performance, leaving a mark on the art world. Seeking the perfect shade of blue, Klein invented his own colour, International Klein Blue (IKB), synonymous with his masterful monochromes.
