Piet Mondrian, was a Dutch painter and art theoretician who, according to Wikipedia (opens in new tab), is thought of as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. Even if you don't know the name, you'll likely recognize his iconic, abstract paintings made up of lines and colorful squares.

It's no secret that photography accessories can sometimes look a bit bland and black, so if you've ever thought that the best Portable SSDs (opens in new tab) could do with a more exciting design, the new ORICO Montage series certainly livens things up.
