Ľudovít Fulla

Ľudovít Fulla (February 27, 1902, RužomberokApril 21, 1980, Bratislava) was a Slovak painter, graphic artist, illustrator, stage designer and art teacher. He is considered one of the most important figures of Slovakian Creative Art in the 20th century.

Style

Fulla's work was fundamentally important for the establishment of Slovakian Modernism. His personal style is characterized by a special "poetry of the image" relying on surface and decoration, a synthesis of rational and emotional elements, brilliant colour, knowledge of folk art, East Slavonic iconography and world Modernism. Ľudovít Fulla was predominantly inspired by the Prague modernist milieu. In his works, the principles of Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso and Paul Klee can be found. In the only manifesto of Slovak modernists, he and his friend Mikuláš Galanda formulated a firm stance in their attempt of a mixture of styles. Fulla was recognised for generations for his bright red, orange and yellow. This may have played off the folk iconography always present in his works, or may have been a further admixture of artistic period styles.
