1 is a computer program which prints “Hello World”. Really.
2 is the logo of a Google’s internal product (quite famous for some reasons).

The language in which 1 is written and the product 2 are both named as a tribute to the same person. Who is he?
Hint: Both 1 & 2 resemble what this person has created. Specially 2.

    The “he” in question is Piet Mondrian.

    1) Piet- an esoteric programming language designed by David Morgan-Mar, whose programs are bitmaps that look like geometric abstract art. Piet was named after the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian.
    2) To me, its a variation of Google logo released during Mondrian’s birthday. I am not so sure about the product.
