From About Agam Portfolio

A major figure in modern art, Agam is often referred to as the “father of kinetic art.” He was born in Rishon le Zion (then-Palestine, now-Israel) on May 11, 1928. Agam’s upbringing with a rabbinical father influences his works. His religion manifests in his subject matter and use of abstract, non-figural forms. As a teenager, he continued to pursue art, studying at the New Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem. Agam is perhaps best known for creating the “agamograph,” where multiple images are represented on raised surfaces, creating an optical illusion. In recent years, Agam has focused on large-scale works such as the Hanukkah Menorah in New York City, Homage a Mondrian in the Le Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles, and a memorial for victims of the Holocaust at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. His works can be found in a variety of prestigious institutions worldwide, including the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in Missouri, and numerous private collections.
