Looking at Hans Hofmann's work it is very compact and colourful due to a series of shapes. These shapes are all squeezed into the picture and so resembles that of a shanty town. Looking at these cities, especially the Favela in Brazil, the buildings are all very close to each other and are also, in some cases, quite colourful. Some of the images in the influence map show this as there is a wide selection of colours involved, especially in the second image down from the top right corner. That is something that can be seen in Hofmann's work and so would create an equally compact setting.
