In 1921, Jan Kiemeney becomes a member of the group Moderne Kunst, of which Jozef Peeters and Edmond Van Dooren are the driving forces since 1918. Kiemeney is heavily under the influence of Cubism, Futurism and Abstract Art after WWI. In 1926, he causes quite a commotion with painting the façade of a shop on the corner of the Lammekensstraat and the Kerkstraat in ‘new style’. The abstract composition of the façade consists of circles, orange cubes, yellow squares and green spots.
