Ellsworth Kelly and a Short Lesson on Design

“Simple, I don’t like the word simple. I like easy better. I want to forget about the technique. I sweat and worry but I don’t want it look like that; but you can’t separate the artist and his technique.

– Ellsworth Kelly

The American painter, Ellsworth Kelly was the inspiration for our grid creations. He was very well-known for his colour-grid paintings and abstract work.

We also had a look through the book, “A Book About Design: Complicated Doesn’t Make it Good”, by Mark Gonyea.  The author uses a really creative approach to explain design concepts. I would highly recommend this book to students of any age.
