Futurism was an art movement that originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It was characterized by its celebration of modern technology, speed, and the energy of modern life. Futurist artists sought to capture the dynamism and excitement of the modern world through their work. Futurist art is often characterized by its use of bold colors, fragmented forms, and a sense of movement and energy. The movement was influenced by the work of Cubist artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, as well as the industrialization and urbanization of society. The subject matter of Futurist art was often focused on the modern world, with a particular emphasis on the machine age and the speed and power of technology. Some of the most famous Futurist artists include Umberto Boccioni, Giacomo Balla, and Carlo Carrà. Futurism had a significant impact on modern art and design, particularly on movements such as Constructivism and Art Deco. Its celebration of modernity and technology continues to influence contemporary art and design today.
