Sonia Delaunay is a Ukrainian artist and designer who moved to Paris in 1905. She is known for her bold use of color in abstract geometric patterns. "For me, there is no difference between my painting and my so-called decorative work," she says. "I have never considered minor art artistically frustrating; on the contrary, it is an extension of my art." Her paintings are influenced by Fauvism and feature vivid colors. The unique style she created with her husband Robert Delaunay is a fusion of Cubism and futurism that Guillaume Apollinaire nicknamed Orphism.
