Exploring Colour: Tear your own Kandinsky Circles ...

Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian artist who died in 1944. He was famous for his Abstract art - his paintings are full of shapes, lines and colours, rather than the real world.

Kandinsky believed colour and shape expressed an artist's feelings. Kandinsky had an unusual brain condition which jumbled his senses in such a way that he could hear colours as well as see them.

His paintings are full of bright colours, circles and lines.

Make your own Colour Wheel

Use the materials in the Allen Centre to explore the colour wheel and create

your own Kandinsky art.

Complementary colours are exactly opposite each other on the color wheel. Yellow is complementary to purple, red is complementary to green, and blue is complementary to orange.

When complementary colors are placed next to each other, they look especially lively.
A red square on a green square looks much brighter than the same red square appears on the yelllow, orange, blue, or purple squares....

It looks red - but take it away and a green after-image magically appears
- red's complementary colour on the Colour Wheel!

The orange squares are all the same but see the brightness shift
against different coloured backgrounds.
Watch orange almost shimmer against its complementary, blue!
