Artist biography

French-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, 1923 - Paris, 2019) lived and worked in Paris since 1960. A major protagonist in the field of Kinetic and Optical Art, a movement that encourages “an awareness of the instability of reality”*, his body of work established him as one of the key 20th 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 prestigious permanent collections at institutions such as:

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York Tate Modern, London Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris Centre Pompidou, Paris Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne
