Cruz-Diez, Carlos (1923-2019)

Carlos Cruz-Diez was a Venezuelan artist based in Paris, who explored the different forms, circumstances, movements and subtractions of color. His art falls under the Kinetic and Optical Art movement from the 20th century, which as he stated, is a movement that continuously depicts the “instabilities of reality”. During his career, Carlos Cruz-Diez used diverse methods to highlight color on his works, yet at the age of 80, he shifted his approach and began using computers to further his research. Today, he remains one of the most influential and innovative artists of the 20th century, while his research on color continues to be passed on to younger generations, through educational programs at the Cruz-Diez Art Foundation. His works have been showcased at the MoMa, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Latin American Art, The Museo de Bellas Artes in Caracas, and others, as well as in independent galleries all over the world.
