Madi movement


An international art movement embracing all branches of art and promoting geometric abstraction and irregular shapes, it started in Buenos Aires in 1946 with Gyula Kosice, Hungarian-Argentinian artist and poet, and Carmelo Arden Quin, painter, sculptor and writer of Uruguay. The name is derived from the Republican motto in the Spanish Civil War of "Madri, Madri, no pasaran". Meaning in English, Madrid, Madrid, they will not make, it was the response of citizens to invading French forces. Source: Wikipedia,
