Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #3, January 15, 2015

This painting was inspired by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, and is an example of what Mondrian would call Neoplasticism, or new plastic art, a non-representational form of art with a white ground, black grid, and primary colors filling in sections of squares created by the grid. I took this concept and added beer right where I felt that pint would be emphasized most, on the largest color block. Mondrian lived from 1872-1944, making it to the ripe old age of 71. The Neoplasiticism movement, also called De Stijl was founded in 1917 by a group of Dutch artists. They all followed the strict white ground, black grid and primary color blocks formula in their creations. The painting I emulated is from 1921, and is entitled Composition with Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray and Blue. I call this painting Composition with Large Pint, Yellow, Black and Blue. The original is 22”x22”, and the prints are 11”x11”. This one took me three days to complete.

This painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print, or order a custom painting at my Etsy shop.
