Spatialism

Spatialism was founded by Lucio Fontana in Italy in 1947. Described in his White Manifesto, Spatialism sought to define a kind of art that would be suitable for the modern age. In the manifesto he recommended a combination of artistic and scientific innovations and discredited the traditional illusory space of painting. Neon lights and television were some of the materials he suggested using to achieve a projection of light and color into the “real” space of the world. Some of Fontana's best-known works are his slashed canvases, in which the artist deliberately and literally broke through the picture plane. Fontana was able to discredit the traditional painting surface by mutilating it, forcing the viewer to engage with the painting in an unfamiliar way. By communicating with the audience in new ways, and breaking down some conventions of paint on canvas, Fontana created a movement that can be seen as a precursor Environment Art. Fontana's gestural and theatrical work was setting the criteria for a new concept of space that would be utilized by architects and sculptors. Using abstract means he defined the leap from the canvas to the realm of real life.

Latest Product Reviews

These frames are absolutely beautiful. They're well made, easy to open and close, and create a sleek, elegant display. In fact, they're the reason I found misterart.com. I'd found them at a shop locally, but it's much more convenient (and cheaper, even with shipping) to get them here. I hope MrA never stops carrying them. I was pleased by how well packed for shipment they have been in my orders so far, too. I'm confident that when I place orders for multiples the delivery folks can chuck them around and stomp on the boxes without the frames becoming damaged. Awesome.

This product works as advertised and cuts very nice circles after you get the hang of it, which doesn't take long. For safety when not in use, be sure to stow the blade so that it is not projecting down as it is when being used.
- Dan Swain in Warfordsurg, PA
As a professinal artist, I have the highest opinion of Liquitex acrylic colors. I have been painting with them for more than forty years, on both canvas and illustration board, and they are always a pleasure to work with. After so many years, even my earliest paintings still look as though they were painted yesterday. I especially love the versatility of Liquitex colors. They have a consistent, buttery quality that makes them perfect for a range of techniques, from impasto "oil painting" to watercolor washes. I periodically place large orders to Mister Art and highly recommend them for their value and service. They are a great source for many hard to find supplies, and, in all the years that I have ordered from them, they never disappoint. Also, the VIP Savings Club is a great value. I save a lot on discounted VIP prices. Thank you, Mister Art!
