The Harmany of art and spirit
WASSILY KANDINSKY (1866-1944)

Wassily Kandinsky is known as one of the founding fathers of abstract art, by distorting realities of the physical world, more of what he was trying to create was a spiritual encounter by way of the colors and shapes he employed in his art.
He is a Russian artist only after he attended the University of Moscow where is studied law and economics and eventually taught.
In 1911, he co founded a Munich artists circle, Der Blaue Reiter, or The Blue Riders, whose members shared an idea that art could share i a interconnectedness of art and spirituality.
Kandinsky's name has been associated with "Improvisations," "Impressions," and Compositions." art styles.
Notable works" Composition V, 1911; Painting with Green Center, 1913; Yellow, Red, Blue, 1925.

I have been influenced greatly by Kandinsky's work. Many of my Kaleidoscope paintings come from his artist blending of art and spirit.
