Orphism + Futurism + Suprematism + Constructivism

Orphism(1912) is a response to Cubism which focuses mainly on bright colours and abstract. Futurism(1909-18) is a branch of Cubism which celebrates the beauty of motion and speed. Suprematism(1913) is a Russian movement which focuses on geometric forms using limited colours. Constructivism(1913-32) is a mixture of Cubism's broken shapes and Futurism's overlapping images.

Giacomo Balla. (1871-1958). As a futurist painter, Balla envokes motion into his artwork and often uses very bright colours to contrast with the dark negative space.

Futurist fashion. Giacomo Balla. 1914. Futurism does not limit itself to merely a canvas. "Balla initially studied the speed of automobiles, thus discovering the laws and essential line-forces of speed. After more than twenty exploratory paintings, he understood that the flat plane of the canvas prevented him from reproducing the dynamic volume of speed in depth. Balla felt the need to construct, with strands of wire, cardboard sheets, fabrics,[...] the first dynamic plastic complex."

Giacomo Balla was an artist and participated in futurism. He was displaying sort of graphic and light colored design of manifesto on menswear.

"Pure Red Color, Pure Blue Color, and Pure Yellow Color (1912) intended to once and for all bring death to traditional painting in order to open new doors for artistic expression. It also made a drastic political statement about the ways that art functioned prior to the revolution, giving new socio-political weight to the Constructionist movement. The piece’s simplistic, yet poignant aesthetic can be seen as one of the earliest influences on abstract art and minimalism of the 60s and 70s."

Russian avant-garde. (1890-1930). The Russian avant-garde was the result of the preperation for the Russian revolution. Russian artists had separated into two groups where some would get ready to fight while others would try and escape it by travelling to Paris. Those who fled, spread some of their artistic culture wherever they went thus influencing other artists which eventually led to movements such as Suprematism and Constructivism.
