Checkerboards are simple forms. Arkilla Jenngo

Not much creativity needed to create these basic geometric forms. It could even be said that checkerboard motifs are born during one’s lazier creative moments.

But throw in a little color & a few motifs and the overall impact becomes so spectacular that the arrangement is transformed into a work of art!

Tough question!
