The greatest d.i.y. project is living happily.
Why is Aleksander Rodchenko one of the artists that offered something different and special? Well, first of all, he was one of the founders of constructivism. He was an artist that worked especially on the field of photography and painting, but he was also a sculptor and a graphic designer.
Rodchenko is known as the Russian artist that contributed his artistic perspective in the period of the Revolution of October 1917. Influenced as he was, by the photomontage of the German Dadaists, he started his own experiments in photography art.
As he was pioneering Constructivism, he was mainly focused in producing abstract artworks which contained images with lines, specific shapes and coloured forms. The most common characteristics in his photography artworks was the bold and unusual perpectives and the choice of new items that he wanted to be depicted from different sides in order to emphasize the characteristics of these objects.
Once Rodchenko was extremely commited to the Russian Revolution, he decided to abandon fine arts and started a career as a designer of advertisements and book covers. For Rodchenko art was about cultural change and not just a way of expression. That’s what makes constructivism differs from other artistic mindsets, the connection of being practically useful and having an artistic aesthetic.
