Mark Rothko was an American abstract expressionist who was most famous for his colorful "multiforms". Playing with color and form in innovative ways, Rothko is considered one of the most influential American postwar artists. His famous multiforms can be recreated here, or you can take inspiration and create something original. Change color (based on period), size, and position to make your own multiforms!
