Bruno Munari

In the 1950s, Italian designer Bruno Munari produced a series of screen prints entitled Negativo Positivo. Munari aimed to investigate the Gestalt Theory, meaning “unified whole”, by achieving optimum equality between the light and dark sections within an image. The geometrical prints present flat colours that Munari has arranged in such a way so that they compete in equal measure to be the foreground or background. This series constitutes an important analysis of perceptive ambiguity.
