An apple drawn in the famous De Stijl art style.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Deceptively simple on the surface; but I can somewhat see the hidden geometrical message behind this grandiose piece. How many rectangles, I wonder?? Legend has it that those who uncover the secret tessellation are hunted down by the Illuminati (and never heard from again)

Rectangles are the true symbol of the Illuminati, the triangles are just out there to throw off the unwashed masses.

Eh hmm... abstract! And yet, it feels somehow very... unoptimized somehow. Like the blocks have no symmetry. Different widths and heights entirely, placements with what seems like random spacing between them, and the contours of the apple appear uneven and edge with the crispness of the surrounding tiles. I feel like the apple would've looked better without the white background too, maybe a crisp outline; the blocks therein, with the black shining through? And some pattern to the blocks... for a De Stilj style it feels a bit spacey. Well, creative stuff!

De Stijl usually has random widths and heights like that, but I'll make a second De Stijl apple with your suggestions to see how it turns out.
