Antonio Asis Artist

Antonio Asis pittore

Antonio Asis was an Argentine artist and one of the main exponents of kinetic art. He was born in Buenos Aires in 1932 and at the age of 14 he enrolled at the National School of Fine Arts of his city which he attended until 1950. Subsequently, at the Prilidiano Pueyrredón School of Fine Arts studies composition with Héctor Cartier who encourages the young artist to explore the multiple applications of the principles of design and composition.
He thus begins to explore the concept of abstraction and non-representational art, even in conversations with his classmates with whom he used to gather, after class, at Bar Splendid, a local café at the intersection of Ayacucho and Avenida Las Heras in Buenos Aires.In 1956, Antonio Asis moved to Paris where he joined an international circuit of kinetic artists including Jesús Rafael Soto, Denise Rene, Pol Bury, Yaacov Agam and Victor Vasarely. In this dynamic environment, he also began to become interested in the study of colours, focusing on the harmony between the chromatic ranges linked to geometric shapes.
At the same time, he also began to analyze the phenomena created by the way in which light affects surfaces and how they can be mediated through photography. Beyond light, the main object of interest on the part of the artist from Rio de Janeiro are the different vibrations that a color can have even within monochromatic compositions.
Antonio Asis's first inobjective works date back to 1957 and are a perfect example of his continuous search for the dematerialisation of the surface.
He became a professor, but never abandoned his research during which he tried to involve other artists and theorists of abstract art, founding the group in 1971 Position
in which members discuss different approaches to kinetic problems.
From this moment on the works of Antonio Asis begin to be in great demand and are exhibited in important exhibitions around the world. Among his most famous works stand out the very famous circles reproduced in different ways to create the perception of movement and the original grids in the sculpture.
