Wassily Kandinsky
December 2016 marks 150 years since the birth of Wassily Kandinsky (Russian-French artist; 16 December 1866 – 13 December 1944):

Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), one of the pioneers of abstract modern art, focused heavily on the use of colour and form to express a range of human emotions in his work, rather than merely replicating the physical world around him. Fascinatingly, Kandinsky is thought to have had a neurological condition called synaesthesia, defined as the capacity to “see” sound and “hear” colour. He therefore often likened the process of painting to that of composing music. In his 1911 book “Concerning the Spiritual in Art”, Kandinsky explored the concept of colour having the power to provoke a strong sensory experience within the soul of the viewer. Even today, his artworks still dazzle with their rich colour tones and geometric planes.
