Artist

Carlos
Cruz-Diez

Carlos Cruz-Diez (17 August 1923 – 27 July 2019) was a Venezuelan artist said by some scholars to have been "one of the greatest artistic innovators of the 20th century."  He moved to Paris in 1960 and was a major protagonist in the field of kinetic and optical art, a movement that encourages 'an awareness of the instability of reality'. One of Latin-America's greatest postwar artists, he wanted shifting and shimmering colour to be experienced as intensely as cold or heat.  He is commemorated in his home city of  Caracas with a museum which bears his name.  His work is represented in major collections including MoMA, New York, the Tate Gallery, London and the Centre George Pompidou, Paris.
