Globetrotting for Geometric Backgrounds Creates Eye-Catching Minimalist Art

Globetrotting to Create Minimalist Art

Minimalist art emerged in New York in the early 1960s  when some artists started to renounce the current art they thought had become stale and academic. New influences and styles led younger artists in a different direction.

The Minimalism movement can be seen in many different forms of art and design. Often the work tries to expose the essence or identity of a subject by eliminating all non-essential forms and focusing only on the simple pure visual.

Spanish photographers Daniel Rueda and Anna Devís Benet have traveled around the world creating minimalist art photographs. Their portraits use color, shape and focal point typically with a geometric background that gives the image a whimsical feeling.

In an interview with More With Less Design, Daniel said “It is not enough to just have an image that looks more or less beautiful; it has to tell something without the need of putting it into words. …My great obsession is to say as much as possible with the minimum required, or what is the same: More with less.”
