Hommage À Mondrian – “Remembering Mondrian”. As the name suggests, the work is artist Kongo's tribute to painter Mondrian. Mondrian, who first laid the foundation for the Neoplasticism school with unique neoplastic art, was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His theory of abstraction not only simplified the changing process of painting, but it also had a profound influence on architecture, graphic design, and industrial design.
By thinking beyond the frame of reference of the surrounding world, Mondrian's simplifications of lines and rectangles (Neo Plasticism) explored the dynamism of motion through independent color and form.
“Hommage À Mondrian” is also based on Mondrian’s own color principle, which is to use only the primary pure colors (yellow, red, blue), and the so-called colorless (gray, white, black). It is a tribute to the talented artist "Piet Mondrian", who has continuously inspired Kongo's creativity throughout his creative journey.
