Rafaël Rozendaal’s new Mondrian-inspired website electricboogiewoogie.com prompted our list of netart inspired by geometric abstract painting. While most of these links are taken from the ultra-sophisticated Mondrian, Lewitt or Albers, we hope to see netart inspired by painters Francis Bacon, H.R. Giger or Odd Nerdrum. Yes, we mean in a funny, self-reflexive kind of way.

We love this piece! At first I thought it was some sort of homosexual symbol for zebras, but the site’s title redirected me.

While most of the links in this edition consist of videos or animated gifs, C.J. Yeh’s work continually takes art historical references, making them into interactive programs.
