Wassily Kandinsky was an abstract artist who was alive from 1866 until 1944. Kandsinky was born in Moscow, Russia but moved to France because of the World Wars.
Kandinsky was an abstract artist. Abstract Art uses lines, shapes, and colors to remind us of things that we know and see. It doesn’t look realistic like a photo.
Kandinsky used lots of lines and shapes to create his abstract artwork. He often listened to music while he would paint. The music would inspire his artwork. Many of his paintings are named after the music he was listening to!
