A Glimpse into Futurism Art

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 23, 2012, 9:55 AM

❖ Introduction

Futurism was an avant-garde artistic and social movement founded by the Italian writer, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes related to the modern concepts of the future, including speed, technology, machinery, violence and objects such as cars, airplanes and industrial cities. It was largely an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia and England.

Futurist ideology influenced all types of art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music.

❖ Characteristics

Futurism exalted the dynamism of the modern world, especially in science and technology. It employs techniques of Divisionism, Cubism features, urban subject matters, and depiction of movement. For example; check out Umberto Boccioni's Unique – Forms of Continuity and Space, you will get a pretty good idea about Futurism!

Nice article.
Many artists of the Futurism movement were fascinated by war at industrial level.
Many of them were volunteer for the first world war and most of the die of this engagement.

Not really related, but this article reminded me of all the old Popular Science and paleofuturist illustrations that showed all the fantastical objects we would have by now.

You know, I have something like an... ummm... I don't know the english name, sorry. ^^; The thing is that I'll have to talk about a movement for my class. And I'll talk about Futurism. What a coincidence, eh? I'll use some images to show futurism in our days, but I'll put all the credits and authors of course. Hope it isn't a bother or something...
I like that movement, I find it interesting. And I find it amusing that I have something like an exposition about it and I go in dA and find this. The art is awesome... Thank you! Both for my work and showing this wonderful art. I love it. Thank you! :boing: :)

The first images, the ones of Tullio Crali have a strong Art Deco reminiscence or at least thats the impression I get.

Great feature. Always informative

Have you ever their manifesto? It's heavy stuff. Much better than their art to be honest with you.

"We want to demolish museums and libraries, fight morality, feminism and all opportunist and utilitarian cowardice."

And what about Dada? Historically, Dada was a much more important movement, not just artistically, but also on the political cultural (and social) levels.

Dadaism is definitely awesome, and so it Futurism, personally I'm getting more and more attached to futurism I might even include futuristic elements in my future paintings.

By the way I'm glad you're back on dA ;) hopefully you're doing great! :heart:

I'm not really back. I check the website every day, and for the first time in months, I found something interesting to comment on.

Dada is important even today, for its idea is still alive, which -as I said- wasn't only related to art, but also to the cultural-political revolution of its time.
Aesthetically, Futurism can be very important and interesting, no question about that, and a very good inspiration for what you're doing.

At school we haven't studied about modern art, but I got this book about Futurism art that I loved so much. I will try to put more futuristic elements in my next paintings :love:
