In my series ‘Urban Suprematism’ I wanted to combine the visual language of graphic design and photography, using two skill sets. I studied graphic design, and I’m interested in abstract photographs, like the works of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, so I started researching the connections between abstract photography and the traditional art forms like painting, and graphic design. The series is a study of the meeting points of constructivist and suprematist art and urban minimalist photography. We can find similar elements in both of them, focusing on basic geometric forms, such as squares, circles, and diagonal lines. I found that these art compositions are re-constructable in everyday urban landscapes in a two-dimensional graphic form.
