Mondrian Style Picture

Piet Mondrian was a painter. He invented neoplasticism. This consisted of white background, upon which he painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. It was a good idea. It still is.

Basic Colors

The three primary colors were, of course, red, yellow and blue. For better or worse painters would mix these colors to produce all kinds of derivatives. But Mondrian's pictures were pure. Here is one for you.

And, if you don't like this one, feel free to paint another one by pressing the "New Picture" button at the bottom.

Print Colors

If Piet Mondrian would live in our times, we are pretty sure, he would have chosen other primary colors. Naturally, teal, cyan and magenta come to mind. After all HP picked these three and they surely knew a thing or two about color printing.

So we think Mondrian's paintings would look like this.

Abstract Composition

Actually, we don't have to be constrained by three colors. We could be moving beyond neoplasticism... to something... well... let's call it multi-neoplasticism for the sake of simplicity. And it still looks pretty!


What if, instead of primary colors, we take something else? A theme, a book, a song, a name, a country? Surely we can!

Here is what happened when we took four seasons of the year and painted them in "mondrian". Pretty cool, isn't it?'
