The Greek-born artist Jannis Kounellis captures raw emotion through the use of taking a regular inanimate object and multiplying it in a series of intricate patterns. This infamous artist is has been based out of Italy since the 1950s and has been creating artwork for the past six decades. Jannis Kounellis has artwork displayed at the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. The poetic nature of this artist makes the simplicity of each piece a prismatic collection of thought-provoking snaps.

Through the idea of multiplying items in a series of simplistic patterns, this minimalist affect by Jannis Kounellis leaves a beautiful idea to a poetic series of artwork. The simplicity of his work is what makes it so beautiful.
