Klee’s work is usually of small scale in many different media. They are always very sensual, visually and mentally delightful and poetically odd. In his work the graphic elements of line, color and space are set in motion by energy from the artist’s mind. He used to say about his style that he is “taking a line for a walk”. His paintings are not meant to be understood, one just needs to enjoy them. Klee often preferred painting on burlap instead of a canvas. His style is very unique and he can’t really be put into any art movement.
Artist’s Quote: “The more horrifying this world becomes…the more art becomes abstract; while world at peace produces realistic art.”
