Did you know?

Like many Latin American artists associated with kinetic art, Jesús Rafael Soto worked in Paris, where he made this artwork in collaboration with a master printer.


Jesús Rafael Soto aligned himself with kinetic art, a movement that spread across Latin America in the decades after World War II. Rather than focusing on representation or abstraction, these artists used bright colors and eye-bending forms to suggest movement and engage the viewer through visual perception. In this print, Soto contrasts layers of crisscrossing lines to create a sense of three-dimensional space.
