I’ve been visiting with the work of Czech painter, František Kupka.

I’m sure I talk way too much about how much I love Cubism, along with many of it’s visual offshoots. Kupka was among the first to experiment with a more “colorful cubism”, a style that eventually became known as Orphism. He was also an early pioneer and among the first painters to experimented a with pure abstraction.

Kupka made many beautiful paintings that I love to look at. Lets check some of ’em out!
