The Evolution of Minimalism [Infographics]


Are you aware of the role that artists like Lichtenstein and Rothko played in the development of the minimalist movement?

The act of cutting back to the core essence of something actually has roots in high art. While the concept definitely draws on tenets Buddhism and has been translated to music, interior design and even a way of life, contemporary art played a role too.

As the Technological Revolution changed the way of the world, a growing anxiety about the end of craftsmanship and originality emerged resulting in art that had been pared down to the bare bones.
