He unites art and science with sensory elements including light and music.
At the heart of all the sculptures created by Greek artist Takis (1925–) is volume. Working with what he refers to as the “fourth dimension”, he unites art and science with sensory elements including light and music. Magnets enforce this philosophy, and he harnesses their force to create pieces that challenge our perception of space and environment. Oftentimes, they appear suspended in mid-air, and are – to the delight of many collectors – authentically original.
Self-taught, Takis lives in Paris, a city that celebrates his creativity in many prominent public spaces, including the Pompidou Center and the Palais de Tokyo.
