Tullio Crali: Futurist Proportions of the Human Body

Posted on: March 22, 2010

1933 Costume Design from the Giacomini Collection in Rome, Italy


I really really really like Tullio Crali’s abstract proportions of the human figure in these Futurist costume designs of the early 30s. I am experimenting in my journal with how geometric shapes can be used to create the human form…it supports my concept because it has that geometric theme, but also, it doesn’t rely on a lot of colour or shading, so I’ve been using reds and blues to accentuate key aspects of the figure but not overembellish it.
