Ilya Bolotowsky first created abstract images on flat picture planes by combining biomorphic and geometric elements, inspired by both Miró and Kasimir Malevich. Piet Mondrian’s pure geometric abstraction profoundly influenced Bolotowsky, allowing him to strip his paintings of any direct reference to nature and explore universal balance. But he did not limit his paintings to primary colors, preferring to emphasize a variety of colors and geometric forms.
