Embracing an aesthetic of pure minimalism, the 'Untitled' Comic Book by French artist Frederique Rusch presents its readers with 16 pages of Mondrian inspired primary colors that vary as they evolve into a series of multidimensional panels and deepening perspective views.

Rusch pays homage to the grid from Charles Burns' Black Hole and creates a minimalist visual aesthetic for graphic novel fans. The artist colors in traditional story board layouts and replaces common cartoon imagery with bare panels that each transform into individual spatial entities.

The Untitled' Comic Book by Frederique Rusch plays with primary colors and nods to the De Stijl art movement that was founded by Theo van Doesburg and made famous by Mondrian during the early era of the 1900s.
