Carlos Cruz Diez

Carlos Cruz Diez was born in 1923 in Caracas, Venezuela, and moved to Paris in 1960 where he became an influential artist of Kinetic Art. He works in various mediums such as painting, prints, sculpture, installation and interventions in public spaces. Through extensive research on colour, he has built a body of work consisting of a series widely known as Physichromie, Transchromie, Induction Chromatique, and Couleur Additive. These works are abstract compositions on chromatic surfaces where the sequence, repetition and juxtaposition of colours create the perception of movement.
