Abstract artist Kandinsky was an influential Russian painter and art theorist.

This pioneer was celebrated as a true poet who could create an aesthetic experience that engaged the sight, sound, and emotions of the public without copying nature. His spiritual approach and artistic knowledge allowed him to explore the depth of human feelings.

    Kandinsky’s eminence as one of the primary motivators of the Abstract art movement him as an artistic figure. His images are timeless and thought-provoking. Kandinsky was one of the few pioneers in the realm of abstract emotions. He wished to express spiritual truths in his art. Above all, he believed in the connection between visual art and music and the spiritual and symbolic associations of color.  He firmly believed in a spontaneous, intuitive approach to painting, and many of his works emphasize this. He played a very prominent role in the philosophical foundations for the progression of Modernism, in particular, Abstract Expressionism. Jackson Pollock, for instance, was interested in Kandinsky and his theories on the expressive possibilities in art. His influence contributed greatly to Pollock’s own career. By making the foundations for Expressionism, Kandinsky set the stage for entire movements and revolutions within the art culture of the day, with effects resonating still.
