Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky creations are distinct – he is a Russian painter and art theorist credited as one of the first purely abstract artists. He was born in Moscow and graduated from the Grekov Odessa Art School beginning his painting career at the age of 30. He migrated to Munich, Germany because he was disenchanted with the official theories of art in Communist Moscow. Here acquired more teachings at Anton Ažbe’s Private School and then at the Academy of Fine Arts. Where he created some of his most memorable pieces was in his years in France. The colourful lines, shapes and hidden figures of Kandinsky ensure his spirit lives on through his art.
