So many shining examples of this exist in the art community, and in this episode of Monday Inspiration we present 60 inspiring concert poster designs from 10 amazing artists.

Durante una temporada, en el año 1917, las pinturas de Mondrian, van der Leck y van Doesburg eran difícilmente distinguibles (cabe destacar el hecho de que Mondrian jamás aceptó la línea diagonal en sus trazados, aunque sí consideró apropiado el uso de la misma para orientar el formato; esto es: podremos saber siempre si estamos ante un Mondrian si no hay ninguna línea inclinada, aunque el formato del lienzo sea un cuadrado colocado en diagonal. Estaban profundamente comprometidos con el clima espiritual e intelectual de su tiempo y deseaban "expresar la consciencia general de su época".
