Presenting Bob Mondriaan!
The idea is that the same code generates different 'paintings'. I tried using Inkscape to get colors involved, but somehow, things are not working properly.
So for now, I can show the TurtleWorld output (colors are quite crucial, I know):

These images consist of full rectangles that could be filled with a random color (obviously white, blue, red or yellow).

The code is a bit of a mess, and I'm still thinking of how I could 'automate' more instead of all the hardcoding:

from TurtleWorld import *
import math
import random

world = TurtleWorld()
bob = Turtle()
bob.delay = 0.01
print bob

def rectangle(t, width, height):
	for i in range(2):
		fd(t, width)
		rt(t)
		fd(t, height)
		rt(t)


def mondriaan(t, scale):
	# omtrek
	rectangle(t, scale, scale)
	
	newWidth = random.randint(3,scale)
	newHeight = random.randint(3,scale)
	
	# rectangle 1
	rectangle(t, newWidth, newHeight)
	fd(t, newWidth)
	
	restWidth = scale - newWidth
	restHeight = scale - newHeight

	# rectangle 2
	rectangle(t, restWidth, newHeight/2)
	rt(t)
	fd(t, newHeight/2)
	lt(t)
	
	# rectangle 3
	for i in range(2):
		rectangle(t, restWidth/2, newHeight/2)
		fd(t, restWidth/2)
	
	rt(t)
	fd(t, newHeight/2)
	

	#rectangle 4
	rectangle(t, restHeight/2.5, restWidth)
	rt(t)
	fd(t, restWidth)
	lt(t)
	
	#rectangle 5
	for i in range(2):
		rectangle(t, restHeight/2.5, newWidth/2)
		fd(t, restHeight/2.5)
	
	rt(t)
	fd(t, newWidth/2)

	#rectangle 6
	rectangle(t, newWidth/2, (restHeight/2.5)*2)

	fd(t, newWidth/2)
	lt(t)
	lt(t)
	
	#rectangle 7
	rectangle(t, newWidth, (restHeight/2.5)*0.5)
	
	pu(t)
	fd(t, scale)
	rt(t)
	fd(t, (restHeight/2.5)*0.5)
	rt(t)
	pd(t)
	
	#rectangle 8
	rectangle(t, restWidth, (restHeight/2.5)*1.5)
