Little more on Aleksander

Found from here “”Click”"

  • In the early 1920s Rodchenko left painting behind, proclaiming it’s death in 1921 in the June issue of MoMA, and took up different types of art including photomontage (he was one of the first to experiment with it), furniture design, poster, book & typographic design, believing these forms of art to be more effective is communicating the messages of the soviet union. His work from this point on echoed what was going on in the Communist Regime during that time.
  • During the movement he formed the first working group of Constructivists. Rodchenko played a large part in the Constructivist movement, essentially making it what it was, just as it, in return, made Rodchenko who he was. The Constructivists were the first group of artists in a long time to consider themselves more important and useful to society as a whole.

  • His design work for other clients ranged from book covers to bookmarks, photo-montage and illustration, and even set and costume design for various Russian theaters.
  • His early focus was on painting before starting his career as a graphic designer, later he would experiment with photography and photo-montage.
  • Heavily influenced by the upheaval surrounding the Russian revolution of 1917, he was one of the most prolific constructivist artists of the period.
