#artFact Artist César Domela came to be the youngest member of De Stijl in 1924. Until around 1927, he painted according to the conventions of Neoplasticism.

Dangling from heavy chains with his red hair and freckles, Jordan Wolfson’s 'Colored Sculpture' is surely not the first ginger you want to kiss today! Did you know the robot’s movements are controlled by a computer program? From time to time, he attempts to establish contact with the viewer, but he can never break free from the software which subjects him to torments. #kissagingerday

Her fascination for planes and lines has become the basis for surprising sculptures and installations in public spaces. Therefore, she has come to work in large spaces. Her work ‘Who’s been sleeping in my bed’, is made of hand pleated synthetic...

“Making art has first of all to do with honesty”, Ellsworth Kelly once said. “My first lesson was to see objectively, to erase all ‘meaning’ of the thing seen. Then only, could the real meaning of it be understood and felt.“

He financed the project himself. The head was...
