Carlos Cruz-Diez was a Venezuelan op-art artist who focused on the kinetic energy of color.
Born in Venezuela, Cruz-Diez would travel to France where he would become enthralled by the colors of the French countryside. Cruz-Diez’s work is based on the moiré effect, in which lines of contrasting color give the impression of movement. He would become the director of art for the Institute for Advanced Studies in Caracas. In 1997, his home city honored the artist when they opened the Carlos Cruz-Diez Print and Design Museum. In 2002, he was awarded by France the medal for Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. He died in 2019.
