The Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez has lived and worked in Paris from 1960. He is a major protagonist in thefield of Kinetic and Optical art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality.” His body of work has establishedhim as one of the key 20 century thinkers in the realm of color. Carlos Cruz-Diez’s visual art explores the perception of color as an autonomous reality evolving in space and time, unaided by form or support, in a perpetual present.

 

His artworks are housed in permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as: MoMA, New York; Tate, London; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne.
