Sol LeWitt's Wall Drawings

Quite unlike the historical games of the many other artists we covered and researched, Sol LeWitt had a completely different strategy and style that will last far beyond their incarnation. Also unlike most artists Sol LeWitt is best known for the art he has granted everyone the ability to create. His series of Wall Drawings were originally painted by him however recorded in full text as a set of instructions on how to paint one. As such new paintings of his are still being produced despite his death in 2007. These paintings are done by Museums to as low as anyone who can follow a set of instructions.

The following video is of the Art Institute Installations of Sol LeWitt’s wall drawing #1111 painted in 2010.

This is one of Sol LeWitt’s Scribbles which are produce in the same manner as his Wall Drawings, via instructions.
