Minimalism was an attempt at a new look at the essence of painting. Artists sought to rethink the canons of art and abandon existing dogma and rules. Pure geometric shapes and color were used to convey ideas - so painters fought against subjectivism and academicism. The emergence of the style was a new stage in the development of interior design, architecture and painting. The essence and the most important ideas of the style are practicality, simplicity, rejection of excesses, concentration on the depth of meaning.
