All throughout time there had been many changes in social, economical and political issues; however, they were not the only things that changed over time. Art became a challenge where artists began to find new ways of expressing themselves, the people and the society they lived in. These changes became something called art movements. The Avant Garde movements is a big group of many different art movements that came within a time period. This group was made to introduce and explore new forms and subject matters. During the 19th century it first appeared in France and was originally said for the new approaches to art making; however, it’s a term that can be used to describe art that pushes the boundaries of creativity. Meaning that even if the Avant Garde had many movements involved within it; nonetheless, each movement stood for something different but influenced from each other. There were several movements before neo-plasticism came to the public allowing it to be influenced by them like cubism. Two of these influential movements were moving the society, one is neo-plasticism and the other is deconstructivism. These two movements came one after the other, both with very strong opinions and changes concerning the world of art. Even though they came between a century of time and many years separate them yet they still have some similarities. Further on the similarities and differences will be explained more in detail to show how two movements that weren’t coming after each other directly can still have some similar aspects but with a new twist. Avant Garde as said above was a group containing many art movements, which are some how similar to each other, some relate as they came one after the other, and others relate by how they reach the viewers eye. De Stijl, also known as neo plasticism, is related in many aspects to the other art movement, deconstructivism. The two movements where found during the same century during the 1900’s. Even though they didn’t come straight after each other yet they have many similarities. There is also a similarity between them in the aspect of design. The two movements’ designs are based on shapes, lines and form. In many of the architecture there is traces of straight and clean edged lines, which form the structure of the building. This is also present in neo-plasticism where they use simple shapes to make high-tech and complex building designs. The images below show how the two movements are some how similar in their building designs. They both have solid, and rigid looking buildings, and with the use of straight lines on different angles they shape the outside of the building designs. The two movements are also similar in a way they both have they use of basic and simple colour schemes. The colour scheme in each is unified and is used all through the architecture, there isn’t surprises in colours or something out of the ordinary. They are both using one colour scheme to present their meaning and principles to the viewer. The choice of a specific colour scheme has an effect on the viewers emotions, and in both movements the colour is a big characteristic which give out feelings and reactions to the observer. The images below show how each of the movements have a unified colour throughout the same design. For example, the image on the left, from De Stijl, shows the primary colour scheme being used for the balcony colours and a simple grey schemed building, making it look unified with the building next to it. The image on the right shows deconstructivism designs in architecture and it shows the grey scheme being used, which was also present in neo-plasticism building designs. The grey is changed to a metallic shade but its still from the same colour scheme. The two images show a unified colour scheme throughout the building designs making it a special and strong standing building.The art movements are expressed in many different things, they’re expressed in architecture, artworks, products and interiors. The artworks of both movements are similar in the way they both use bright primary colours in their work. Shapes and lines are also present in each to define what the artist is trying to give to the viewer. These art pieces can be said to be made in the same time period but different artists interpreting the same thing. However, they are from two different art movements and yet they use the same colours to express each of their movements’ characteristics. There is also a similarity between them where they use geometric shapes to form the art piece rather than a free hand drawing.As the Avant Garde has many movements that connect in characteristics yet some can differ, not only in characteristics but also when they started. De Stijl came in the beginning of the 1900’s; however, deconstructivism came during the end of the 1900’s. Neo-plasticism and deconstructivism have many aspects in common yet they still have differences. De Stijl was one of the basic art movements with very clear characteristics shown; however, deconstructivism is one of the art movements that has curved lines and unorganized shapes. Concerning architecture, de stijl has unified and repeated designs; nevertheless, deconstructivism has very complex and special designs for each building made. They use the aspect of creativity in most of their designs to show the complex characteristics of the movement. Neo-plasticism was one of the movements that could be said to be very simple, and basic, which their influence from cubism was very clear but deconstructivism was a movement that broke the sense of form.
