INFLUENTIAL, POLITICAL, ABSTRACT, MODERN, GEOMETRIC, BOLD
Constructivist art movement was intertwined with the POLITICAL situations in Russia at that time.
Constructivist art INFLUENCED artists such as, Naum Gabo, Vladimir Tatlin, EL LISSITZKY Alexander Rodchenko, Antoine Pevsner, Alexander Vesnin, Liubov Popova, among others. This movement was carried to latter years and was a vital influence of the Bauhaus Movement.
Believing art to have the power to transform society, Lissitzky said, “Art can no longer be merely a mirror, it must act as the organizer of the people’s consciousness.”
El Lissitzky’s political poster, ‘Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge’ is a great example of Constructivism. Constructivism works are mostly ABSTRACT AND BOLD and use symbolic GEOMETRIC SHAPES and experimental type to capture the Russian communist ideology of progress and to establish an acceptance of modernity.
