Cartoon - Mondrian art as street map to Mondrian museum

Art cartoon – a street map to the Mondrian museum in the form of a Mondrian painting.

Mondrian cartoon – a street map locating the Mondrian museum – in the form of a Mondrian painting.

A cartoon illustrating the way that Piet Mondrian’s art has infiltrated its way into everyday design, such as graphic design and architecture. Mondrian’s influence on contemporary design.

Piet Mondrian was a member of the De Stijl art movement, which had quite rigid ideas about what constituted suitable art within the group (as symbolised by Mondrian’s rigid grid layouts). If I remember correctly one member of the group was ejected because he painted his grids diagonally rather than horizontally and vertically.

This cartoon featured in an exhibition in the Cob Gallery, London, titled Pastiche, Parody and Piracy (June/July 2014).
