“A drawing is simply a line going for a walk.”
– Paul Klee
Paul Klee was born in Switzerland in 1879. He was a trained violinist and studied music in Germany. He decided to devote himself to art rather than music when he was a young adult.
Klee expressed himself in different styles. His art is a blend of surrealism, cubism and expressionism. He admired the drawings of children and tried to incorporate that energy and simplicity into his work.
He taught at the German Bauhaus School of Art with Wassily Kandinsky. Klee studied and wrote extensively on colour theory and we used this for the inspiration for our pieces.
