Naum Gabo

It’s always inspiring to me to see how different artist can use architecture to influence their work since architecture is a pretty heavy influence in my own work. Naum Gabo (1890-1977) redefined the relationship between architecture and art many, many years ago with his surprising use of his architectural knowledge in traditionally soft, fluid designs such as faces or bodies. I’ve always appreciated his use of clean lines and several dimensional angles. You can see examples of this to the right as well as more of his work below!


Gabo was versatile in the mediums that he used in his pieces which include glass, metal and plastic, some combining multiple in one structure.
It was important for Gabo to emphasis empty spaces in his work to give a sense of special movement within his pieces. Fluidity in the pieces targeted the elements of space and time which were elements that Gabo wanted his audience to recognized and take away with them.
