Some reasons:
[1] To make a Dadaist poem by Tristan Tzara
“Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article of the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that makes up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are — an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd.”

[2] Dada Manifesto by Hugo Ball
“Dada Tzara, dada Huelsenbeck, dada m’dada, dada m’dada dada mhm, dada dere dada, dada Hue, dada Tza.”

[3] Jean Arp:
“Dada wished to destroy the hoaxes of reason and to discover an unreasoned order”

Dada and the Great War

How has Piet Mondrian influenced later design – Dui Yang

The De Stijl style, also known as Neoplasticism, was a Dutch artistic movement founded in 1917 in the Netherlands. De Stijl artists are not looking for representational things. They advocated immaterial and universal. Therefore, they simplified visual compositions to geometric shapes and only using black, white and primary colors.

Piet Mondrian was one of the famous De Stijl artists. His creation mostly combined with three primary colors, the three fundamental values, and the two principal directions. Because he believed these could create ‘universal beauty.’

Just like his Composition with Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray, and Blue (1921). Mondrian limited his palette to white, black, gray, and the three primary colors, with the composition constructed from thick, black horizontal and vertical lines. The whole image gives viewers neat and exact feeling. And the perfect combinations of the different sizes rectangles balances the entire competition, offers viewers a substantial visual impact. His work had a significant influence on 20th-century art, not only on painting but also graphic design, architecture, and fashion.

The Mondrian Collection was one of the creation inspired by the paintings of Mondrian. The Collection was designed by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent in 1965. The Collection included six cocktail dresses based on Mondrian’s work. The dresses were not printed onto fabric. Each block of primary colors and black geometric lines made of individual pieces of fabric. The designer also created an exact calculation of the weight of each block. Therefore, the dresses will be balanced and no movement when they hung straight, just like Mondrian’s painting.

The Mondrian Collection shows the deep influential from Mondrian’s style to the later art and design. And also show people possibility of the cooperation between art and fashion.
