Constructivism, De Stijl   •   Eliezer Markowich Lissitzky @ Wikipedia

Eliezer Markowich Lissitzky, called El Lissitzky, is one of the most important representatives of Russian costruktivism and one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His work covered a wide variety of disciplines - from painting and architecture to typography, book art and photography. In particular, as a graphic designer, he influenced various modern styles. Also Lissitzky actively maintained numerous contacts with protagonists of the daddy movement, the Bauhaus and the New Typography. Since he commuted to the end of his life between the Soviet Union and Germany, his style is characterized by both Western art influences, as well as by the Russian avant-garde.

Lissitzky's work is strongly politically characterized. He saw the October Revolution of 1917 as a new beginning for humanity, which he also wanted to venture into art and design. His often reproduced poster motif "Beat the whites with the red wedge" clearly reflects this political attitude. Here, too, the crucial design element in Lissitzky's pictures is revealed: the simple geometric basic form. The influence of the even more minimalist suprematism is clearly recognizable.

His work saw Lissitzky as a combination of painting and architecture. Evidence of this, for example, his experimental "Prouns" in which he extended two-dimensional forms to the effect of a third. As a trained architect, he also taught various teaching activities and left the world with novel concepts in the field of exhibition design. © Meisterdrucke
