Yaacov Agam is one of Israel’s most famous artists and internationally praised as one of the greatest artists of the modern age. Often referred to as the Father of Kinetic Art, Agam has invented unique creations that intentionally transcend time and space.
A master in integrated design, color theory, and draftsmanship, Agam stands at the forefront of two significant movements in contemporary art history: Kinetic and Op Art. He is accompanied in renown and practice by Alexander Calder, Victor Vasarely, Bridget Riley, and Josef Albers.
Agam’s multi-faceted works hinge on movement, and dynamically change in relation to a viewer’s position. Agam calls each viewer to action, challenging the notion that art should only be enjoyed from limited perspectives. By relying on viewer perception to complete the composition, each work is never wholly complete or wholly visible. Characterized by sculpted lines, geometric patterns, and bevelled edges, Agam’s artistic aesthetic is entirely non-figurative.
