6 Words to Describe De Stijl:

Simplified Order, Universal Clarity, Harmonious Precision

De Stijl is characteristically ordered and precise, which Alex Bigman asserts is a reaction to the chaos of World War 1 that preceded this movement. It aims to bring clarity and harmony to design, using basic elements of line, shape, and flat planes of primary colour to create a universally approachable style. Piet Mondrian was an important player in this movement, and created a distinct style of geometric and linear grid paintings that influenced my image here.
