DE kooning-flower wall art

In 1924, he visited Belgium, visited its museums and studied in Brussels and Antwerp.
At 22, he immigrated from the Netherlands to New Jersey to work as a painter.
The following year,Black And White Painting he came to New York to make a living as a commercial artist and continued to paint.
In New York, he met his lifelong best friend, golgi, who painted in a studio and watched and learned and influenced each other.
In the 1930s, painting was in vogue for cubism and surrealism. After Hitler came to power, many German painters moved to New York. They brought abstract painting and expressionism.
Bathed in these trends,Contemporary PaintingDE kooning developed his own personal style, emerging among New York painters.
In the first ten years of his life in America, as before, he lived on commercial art and sometimes had to do something else.
Thus, until the late 1930s, he was hired by the New York world's fair as a fresco producer for the federal arts program.
From then on, his paintings could bring him stable income, so he gave up commercial art completely and concentrated on the exploration of painting art.

DE kooning began his first "women" series in 1938.
In the 1940s, he became a figure in the abstract expressionist camp.
His first solo exhibition in 1948 established his reputation as a leading contemporary artist.LARGE ABSTRACT CANVAS ART. GREEN, YELLOW, BEIGE, GREY, RED, ORANGE

DE kooning's works focus on the three series of abstractions, women and men, and among them, especially the women series, it is actually almost consistent with his painting career.
He regarded painting as the process of experiencing, expressing and realizing freedom. He created painting with the passion of dancing performance, which was almost exaggerated in the eyes of others. In this point, he was the same as pollock's bouncing.
In his paintings, no matter the image or abstract content, there is no restriction, composition, space, perspective, balance, and other traditional painting techniques and aesthetic concepts are swept away.
He hated all the restrictions that were placed on painting.
Excavations, which was selected for the 1955 Venice biennale, notes that "colour has clearly returned to painting, the pink, white and yellow of memorable Dutch women.
Color also denotes something even sexier, the opening of the body to be slit is full of red..
Color eventually gives the embedded diamond shape a rare intensity, in which the viewer's eyes merge with the eye in the painting."
