Did you know?

Like many Latin American artists associated with kinetic art, Carlos Cruz-Diez spent much of his career in Paris.


Carlos Cruz-Diez 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, Cruz-Diez layered and contrasted colored lines to suggest three-dimensional space.
