Continuing with the series about influences and artist . I have chosen Mark Rothko as the standout painter.
For Some history about Mark link
I love the colours, the format, the size, the interaction between the colours. There are so many ways to translate his delivery.
His work influences a lot of my graphic design. My eyes are drawn to the balance and relationship between positive and negative space. If I am not mistaken, the earliest graphic design book I read, also referenced Rothko.
Here are some lovely images I found online.
