Additional Information

Untitled was created for the fourth issue of the Pairs art magazine XXe Siècle.Hélion went through several different styles during his career as a painter, beginning with his discovery of abstract art over traditional art, and his later rejection of abstract art in favor of figurative painting.

Untitled was created his abstract and modernist phase. During this phase most of his work contained geometric shapes and graphic colors before beginning to incorporate more human figures in his art. Untitled is also one of few paintings of his to incorporate only one color on the white background.
